My sister Olive has just returned to Paris. Sad to say goodbye to her after such a fun summer but I’m sure despite the cold it’s lovely to be back in the city she now calls home.

While she was here we did a fun little shoot with photography by Kurt Davies with flowers by me.

Carolyn Young is an Australian artist whose work Grassy Woodlands is currently being featured on a Collingwood billboard as part of an art initiative by the Yarra Council. Young is interested in the seasonality of these disappearing ecosystems and encourages her viewers to observe and respect the nature that exists all over. I’d like to have a wall of this in my home.

Loving Vogue Australia’s March cover shoot with Mia Wasikowska. With shades of Egon Schiele and covered in protea and gum nuts, you can’t go wrong. Photography by Emma Summerton, styled by Jillian Davidson, creative direction by Del Kathryn Barton.

I wrote about The Garden Edit store back in February but they have since launched The Garden Edit Journal which is definitely worth a look. Here are two gardens they have posted about which are truly inspiring.

Blossom Talent represents artists, photographers, illustrators and stylists of the botanical persuasion. Such a good idea. Check out some of their roster.

I have to apologise for the radio silence over the last couple of weeks. I took a rather spontaneous trip to visit my sister in Paris and it was go go go from the moment I arrived till the moment I left. It was an incredibly inspiring holiday and there are lots of travel pics to come, but while I get my head in order here are some beautiful images taken by friend and photographer Kurt Davies during one of his recent winter walks through Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park just north of Sydney.

    

Also worth sharing is the really special gift he gave me of miniature prints of these images enclosed in a little hand-made box. Thank you Kurt xx

Great Dixter is one of the most special quintessentially English gardens, created by horticultural extraordinaire Christopher Lloyd, and now lovingly maintained by head gardener Fergus Garrett and this team. It’s not the first time his garden has found its way onto these here online pages. (Check out a Vogue shoot starring Georgia May Jagger set in the garden here.) But here it is again this time in the guise of a film from NOWNESS, created by photographer and filmmaker Howard Sooley as part of their new Great Gardens series.

Other films from the series, the Tresco Abbey Garden and the Ford Ranch are also well worth a watch.
