island hopping pt. 2 – syros, greece

17th August 2015
We boarded our ship as it sat calmly on the Mediterranean water. This was my first time aboard a cruise ship. The ship was modest but welcoming in its decor, we would be spending such little time aboard as we hopped across the Greek Islands that it is all that was needed. After enjoying lunch aboard the ship we set sail for our next stop, Syros a beautiful island packed full of greek heritage. We meandered the white marble streets where bellowing bright pink blooms hung beautifully over boutique doorways, our guide took us around some of the most breath taking buildings and churches that still stood seemingly immaculate after many years. The attention to detail in Greek architecture from intricately tiled floors to painstakingly handcarved statues and columns meant with every look there was something new for our eyes to feast upon. Following our tour of the main town in Syros we sat down to dinner at a beautifully crisp white open air restaurant which felt like it was situated with in the sea, only separated by a wall which was constantly stroked by the waves as they broke. The food too came in waves and we enjoyed delicious local cuisine and produce until we could consume no more and finally returned to the boat for our first night on the water. Next stop – Cesme, Turkey.   For more information on booking your 4 day idyllic cruise please visit the Celestyal Cruises & Aegean Airlines website.   This post was shot on the Olympus PEN E-PL7 Kit & 45mm lens.

The plum tree in our garden is always the first blossom to erupt at this time of year narrowly beating the much loved aubretia that grows in abundance through our old garden wall. As soon as is acceptable I’m out with my secateurs ready to fill vases and prickly jars with its delicate confetti like blooms 🌸
Februarys carpet of Crocus blooms is always quite the spectacle. I find these little cheerful perennial flowers popping up in the most unlikely of places and what’s special is how they naturalise and multiply each year to create a carpet of flowers ready for the early Winter-Spring bees 🌱
Winter Spring views.
Primrose & Snowdrops are on their way!
February is a very special month, it almost feels like the build up before the crescendo of spring and I can’t help but feel a flutter in my chest at the thought of what’s to come 🌱
Ad a successful day at the races with @boodles wearing my some of my own pieces from their incredible collections, mixed in with my favourite pieces from their Secret Garden collection. This bracelet is showstopping!
