Catching Up - June to August 2015

June -  Capri.
July -  Move into new studio.
August - Working long days with plenty of space - bliss.

Whenever I'm in London I often go to The Chelsea Physic Garden. It is a hidden paradise, to rest, refresh, recuperate.

Well, my daughter and I did bring back a lot of plants from Chelsea needless to say. She has a very neglected area on the roof of her rented house just waiting to be turned into a lovely garden retreat.

Silver dishes by Gilbert Leigh Marks - one of the most remarkable exponents of floral silver chasing.
An aide-mémoire for papier-mâché, gesso and silver leaf.
 We arrive in Naples hell's kitchen and melting pot for refugees and migrants from everywhere.
 And take the ferry to Capri. My spiritual home.
 First stop as always is Buonocore for espresso and wild strawberry tartlet. Fuel for the journey.
Rest awhile in dappled sunlight.
 Time to buy fruit to take on our walk and our first adventure.
