Weekend Life....Summer Inspiration (#1)

Summer Inspiration (#1)

Mid-summer: Sunburnt landscapes; bleached blonde wood, French market baskets for piling with fresh produce from the market (or allotment garden); slicked back hair from lazy dips in the ocean; late afternoon light filtering through olive trees and over swathes of golden grass, vases (or old candle containers) filled with fragrant cut herbs: rosemary, mint, lavender, oregano and thyme; natural make-up with just a hint of colour and subtle glow; vines making a last dash up walls warmed by the sun before autumn sets in....
