If your social media feeds are heavy on the cottagecore aesthetic, you won’t get through the month of May without seeing at least a dozen photos and videos featuring these otherwordly patches of blue scattered across the forest floor. However, shooting or filming in bluebell woods requires a lot of care and attention, and here’s why.
As I was editing these rowan blessed photos from early autumn, I started thinking of how depressing the second half of autumn can seem. So I thought I’d share some of my tips for managing seasonal depression during these gloomy winter months.
I fell deeply in love with the ruined orangery at Gibside. The tall brick arches with the overgrown garden within was like something out of The Enchanted Castle – my favourite Edith Nesbit novel.
In the autumn of 2018, Owen and I went to Wheelbirks and took some photos in the orchard right at the end of apple picking season. When I see these photos now, all I can think of is how things have changed since Lila.
I’m hoping for more magical, sun drenched days so I can break out all the floaty, dreamy sundresses this summer, even if it’s just for a socially distanced walk around the block. In times like these, it’s the little things that breathe meaning into our days.
Last Saturday was the perfect summer day (in April!) Owen and I took the afternoon off to wander along Jesmond Dene.
