With the advent of Summer, the earth enters into a time of fruition and fulfilment, abundance in full crowning glory. The natural world explodes into full bloom; flowers and fruits blossoming to their full potential and unfurling in a kaleidoscope of colours. Not only a feast for the eyes, many of these botanical beauties provide a haven for bee’s, helping the plight of the declining honey bee who feed off pollen and nectar.
‘The Earth laughs in flowers’ ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
Whilst each season possesses its own unique beauty, as someone living in the Northern hemisphere, Summer holds a particularly special place in my heart. The warmer Months bring with it a carefree sense of freedom, an expansive energy that compels me to spend more time outdoors appreciating the full splendour of Earths masterpiece. Lazy Summer days spent lounging in the garden, amidst a blaze of colour and floral fragrance that tantalise the senses. I love nothing more than to get snap-happy out in nature, savouring the natural beauty with all of my senses. Taking in every sight, sound, scent, and feeling of soft velvety flowers to the touch. I also find photography a wonderfully grounding tool, so here is a selection of my summer blooms for you to enjoy.
