Wordless Wednesdays: London Walks/Looking for inspiration around me!

Seeking inspiration for a special (and temporarily secret!) project, on Tuesday you could have easily found me walking around Southbank. Mediterranean look, sketchbook on hand, nose pointing the sky in search of the perfect idea, I would have been very easy to identify! 

Here some little 'treasures' photographed during my 'Inspirational Walk' while searching for feelings, shapes, and textures for my next project!

Wordless Wednesdays: 5 Favourite Plants which will Flower on time for Christmas!

At the moment of writing this week post, I am still very excited by the GMG Award lunch.
A very overwhelming event which took place at the Intercontinental London Park Lane last Wednesday. It was great to meet Friends, Collegues and Garden Heroes!
Among the awarded, Crocus (one of my favourite nursery) won the 'Best Website of the Year'!
A really deverved award for a very informative and elegant website, full of precious informations but also of great photos! This week I am therefore going to pick 5 White Flowered Plants from their stunning selection, which will be in flower by Christmas!!!
(Click on the photos to visit their website and to read more!)
