This afternoon I am off to Edinburgh with some friends for the fringe festival. If the weather holds out, I may break off on my own for a trip to the Royal Botanic Garden, but it’s not looking good! If you’re at home this weekend, here is a very select list of links you may enjoy:
Botanic Superlatives: The Oldest Seed Bank
Beekeeping Basics: Show me the Honey!
Landscape painting fans will love these bags made by swarm, made using old oil paintings.
Juice, a love story
Harvesting garlic on Soule Mama
Pinterest, the picture sharing platform, can be an intimidating beast if you’re new to it. It is a massive time waster, but if you’re an image collector like me, it is a vast and valuable resource. If you’re new to pinterest and looking for like-minded green fingered pinners, here are a few of my favourite follows:
Enhabiten: for heritage imagery, rustic products, interesting textiles, healthy food and country scenes.
Kaitlyn Harun: for interior gardens, cacti, natural products, typography, vintage clothing.
The Small Garden: almost exclusively garden design inspiration
French Grey: for florals, inspiring gardens, french interiors.
My pinterest boards can be found here. Happy pinning!
I am a huge fan of Becca Stadtlander’s whimsical illustration work. She paints the most beautiful landscapes which are full of life and feeling. She has recently collaborated with Red Cap Cards and the results are lovely: I would urge you to check out the rest of her range. She has also made work for the New York Times, O – The Oprah Magazine and Jamie Oliver Magazine.
