Petersham Nurseries in Richmond, Surrey

Richmond is a really nice day trip for those visiting or living in London, particularly because the wonderful Petersham Nurseries is just a short detour from the river Thames and a visit is worthwhile even if you’re not purchasing plants.  They have a Michelin star awarded restaurant and a low key teahouse – I have yet to eat at the restaurant but every dish I have had from the teahouse has been delicious. We went for lunch (at the teahouse) on Sunday with a relative visiting from New Zealand and it was very sunny and very, very hot and a bit of a respite from the busy river’s edge.

Dietlind Wolf: flora styling

These photographs are by prolific prop stylist Dietlind Wolf, based in Hamburg Germany.  Her blog is pure inspiration featuring food, product as well as floral styling.  Have to admit that food styling usually leaves me cold, but I am loving her work.  Her portfolio is incredibly diverse, whilst showing great restraint within each series.  There is much, much more to be seen on the Dietlind Wolf website, you could easily get lost in the imagery for hours.
