Foraging in my homeland

Happy New Year!

I was lucky enough to get away for the Christmas and New Year break and I spent a majority of my time in Waiheke Island and Auckland. I forgot how beautiful New Zealand is in the summer time!

I was at friends house one day who has an amazing garden that she has been working very hard on, and wanted to cut some flowers for her house. My friend has an amazing collection of Crown Lynn ceramics and McAlpine jugs which her mum had collected over the years and they are quite rare! So I had a little play and here was my favourite creation!

C O S M O S !

I don't no if I have said it enough or too much? But I am loving this time of year! And my new FAVOURITE bloom of the week, Cosmos. I cannot get enough of it.

Its so wild yet pretty, delicate and fluffy, and the colours are amazing! i think if was to get married tomorrow, it would be all I would use! (I will also be saying this come spring when the gorgeous Flannel flower comes out)

So have a look and enjoy x
