Steam Train Station Of Blooms

Hello my dears and welcome to mid-summer,

July is a special month, just over half-way through the year and questioning how much we have achieved, what we hope to gain and often opportunities we wish we had grabbed in the moment. Overall, it is a month full of thought and more often than not, dabbles of sunshine and blue skies.

Drying flowers has continued to be one of my biggest enjoyments, watching them initially give life into my room in a vase and then over time watching them crisp, keep their colour and sit in amongst their petal friends in various wicker baskets around my room. Wow, that was a sentence you needed to take a big breath before saying. I know a great little place that does fresh bunches that won't burn a hole in your pockets and it has become a Sunday tradition to travel there and pick up a couple of varieties on my weekends off.

Sometimes I feel like I am living in a time warp, the steam train station in the pictures above is quite literally like walking out of a book you would read growing up in the 50's. Big, bold vintage signs cover the brick walls and I have never seen a station so filled with colourful flowers and character. You can sit on one of the vintage benches, watch the stream and listen out for the smoke puffing out of the chimney as the train approaches the corner.

Life is giving me lemons at the moment, I can feel the citrus on my skin and am embracing all that it has to offer me whilst I can. Freckles are appearing from nowhere all over my limbs and I feel very lucky to have had a little burst of brightness in my life recently. Long may the positivity last, for everyone.

I hope you are all having a wonderful summer and surrounded by wonderful people and nature.

Lots of love always
