I recently changed my Instagram handle from @thesecretgardenblog to @sophia_kaplan

Still the same photographs of gardens and flowers, but I wanted it to reflect my new branding and website.

Some recent posts…

I did flowers for a shoot late last year with Damien and Anastasia (same team as the Daughters of Simone shoot) which was recently published in White Magazine. Check out some of the pics below, or the article here.

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.

We have just returned from a magical few days down at Sambo’s farm.

The New Years Eve dinner tables were painstakingly built (between glasses of spritz) by the boys and decorated with quince branches by Angele, Olive, Jane and me. Dinner at sunset was followed by performances in the theatre and lots of dancing.

The rest of our days were filled with trips to the waterfall and the gorge to cool ourselves in the summer heat with 30 of us comically spread across two utes to travel, watching movies under the stars with everyone piled on mattresses in front of the projector, and eating an unimaginable amount of food prepared with so little fuss by Que and her team of mates.

To old friends and new, and most importantly Sam, Kali and Rupert, thank you for such a great escape.

I’m not going to lie – I’ve been missing Paris like crazy. I was due to return around now but life happened and it looks like I’ll be here in Sydney for a bit longer. I can’t complain, autumn has been beautiful and Sydney has been good to me. I’m working for a florist and a landscape designer both of whom I admire greatly and whose generosity in sharing their craft continually blows me away. I have a lot to learn and I am loving the process as well as the opportunity to do some projects of my own.  These lovely photographs of springtime in Paris from Carin Olsson’s blog Paris in Four Months will have to keep me sated for now.
