My tiny studio (yay!!!) is still being partitioned off, and all my fabric is spread all over the house while the great bedroom re-organisation takes place so I don't have a project on the go at the moment. On the other hand, I'm spending a lot of time just thinking and looking and making plans.
I was out of the city this afternoon for an appointment and it's a beautiful day so I just had to pull over onto the verge and go for a walk.
The rape flowers have a disconcerting scent - it's nice, but it's definitely pollen-y with an undercurrent of wee.
The broom just smells glorious.
Thinking, looking and making plans - such an important part of being creative! :-)ReplyDelete
Catherine, I nominate you for perfume / wine / scented candle / air freshener ad writer of the year: pollen-y with an undercurrent of wee...ReplyDelete
New header is cool-o!
xxoo, m & jb who says if there is undercurrent of wee, Somebody didn't cover!
We don't have rape here but I remember its almost flouro dominance in the UK. Always v striking against a grey sky. Exciting times with the studio...!ReplyDelete
You've made me think twice about switching from olive oil to rapeseed oil now! The studio sounds exciting–it's great to have 'a room of one's own'.ReplyDelete
what an amazing yellow! Completely inspiring, apart from the undercurrent of wee (although my boys would find that very funny!)ReplyDelete
I do love yellow, this time of year is just beautiful. Although I do love it when the blue crop come out in flower too, I can't remember what they're called now, but they just look like gorgeous lakes sometimes.ReplyDelete
It was a rare occasion when you can write about rape, smelling of wee and its ilk and bring a smile to a girl's face! My dad always says gorse is lovely to look at, but a curse if it gets in the garden.ReplyDelete
Ugh, I hate the smell of rapeseed!ReplyDelete
Gorgeous pictures - if not all the smells! I hope your studio will be ready soon :)ReplyDelete
Beautiful photos. The smell must be overpowering though!ReplyDelete
Great description of the rapeseed smell Catherine, you should be a wine writer :)ReplyDelete
Ditto - Celtic Thistle !! ;)ReplyDelete
Just stopping by to say Hi. I've not been keeping up with blogland very well lately but I've been wondering how your studio is coming along. I hope it all going well and that you are having a good Summer, Janine :) xReplyDelete
