Field to Plate!

 

In Praise of Green!

Cooking with Wild Ingredients……

As Pantone have named green the colour of the year for 2017 I am posting a gloriously green blog about our quest for wild garlic pesto! Every Spring we venture to the blue bell woods to collect the leaves of young wild garlic flowers to make this delicious pasta pesto treat…

Here is glimpse into our morning, followed by a delicious lunch!

A Dose of Colour Therapy

Happy Yellow

Colour as tonic!

 The sky was so dark and grey this morning I decided to pick out our vibrant yellow sky blossom scarf to make a cheery post on Instagram. Whilst it was draped on a chair  I mistook it for a ray of sunshine. A simple solution for bringing a dose of spring colour indoors!

 

Surface Pattern Inspiration

 

Neutral tones, rich texture and organic shapes.

I almost set off without a camera in the pouring rain but look at what a wet woodland walk can offer by way of inspiration for designers, artists and photographers!

Spring to the Edge of the Meadow

Spring to the Edge of the Meadow

Our double sided cotton  scarves lined with chiffon, allow you to accessorise well into spring, wrapping up for cooler days, or adding a bright accent to an outfit.Each print is carefully designed with a lot of attention given to the overall composition so that it shows off the print to the max when it is worn.

The exclusive one off print makes it a unique,  luxurious gift, or a special treat for yourself. Below is a collage of pictures revealing a glimpse into where my inspiration came from…mainly the glorious Hampshire countryside.
