July instagram - a mix of old and new

Instagram is my photographic 'hello'.  I like to put something up almost daily, whether old or new.  My winter garden has been a constant subject - it's been lovely seeing more bulbs flowering this year, their second in the ground.  My thrifted blue bird cage (bottom row, second left) is a feature no matter what time of year, but particularly beautiful against the stark, leafless apricot tree mid-winter.

Sophie's bed (top right) made an appearance in a shout out to Ken Done who was recently featured on The Design Files.  Mum made my KD doona cover at least in early 1988, if not before.  We couldn't afford one from the shop, so she cleverly pieced together one of my own which is still being used 26 years later!  Great work mum!

    1. Thanks Penny! It's lovely to have this second year of the garden, realising for example, that one tree is starting to get its leaves now, earlier than last year, and another is later.

      The forks - totally agree, they just looked so lovely sitting there… almost frame-worthy!

  2. I'm working on the photography. Will take a while before I'm up to your standard, though!

    1. It's very addictive Isabelle - make sure you have a month's worth of meals once it sets in, honestly, between writing and photography it's any wonder we get fed!
