🌱 If you zoom in on this photo you will see that the metal tag is inscribed with ‘a happy thought’. I assume this is the name of this particular geranium, or perhaps it’s a memory? Either way I think is delightful. What’s your happy thought for today? I think mine is that I will treat myself to a boiled egg tomorrow for a weekend breakfast 🥚. #antijanuaryblues

jenn and i decided to document our house plants and other gardening things come the warmer seasons. with her awesome journalism and some photos i’ve been taking, things are slowly coming together and we’re a bit excited about it. we’re going to take field trips to plant stores, show you how to take care of them properly in our nova scotian weather, and show you the mistakes we make along the way. if you want to follow what we’re doing, find us at @hfxhouseplants 🌿♥️🌎

I just love this shot in black & white so much. I think because I only used black and white film for so much of my school days, I got a bit frustrated with the lack of colour. But now I have a new found respect for how it draws your attention to the use of light without distraction by colour.
Not long now til our first workshop of 2018. We can't wait for @gemhampton to join us in the studio and teach us her brush illustration and mark making techniques. A few places still available in the afternoon if you fancy it. A mindful 3 hours of 'me time' to have fun getting back into drawing. Saturday 27th January 2.00 - 5.00 pm
