beetroot juice & baby’s breath…
The beauty of Spring is the new-found lightness in the air, the sign of new beginnings and the essence of summer at your fingertips. It means one step closer to grand moments; the birth of my first nephew, a walk down the altar with my best friend and a honeymoon that I literally cannot wait for! It is the promise of warmth, a season of blossoming flowers and the time to starting planting herbs on the balcony. Even the raindrops seem far more delicate now, the anticipation of cozy thunder evenings behind white curtains that blow in that brewing storm. Even the birds have a new rhythm to their chirp and the sea seems like a sparkle of diamonds. It is that first cup of tea on the balcony in the calm morning breeze watching the seagull nest on the rooftops and feeling that warmness from the sun rays as one freckle forms after another. I cannot wait for the cherry blossoms to burst open, visit farmers markets that spill with veggies and walk through colourful meadows with hay touching the edge of my toes.
This moment of happiness is from our kitchen, a morning of creating flower arrangements for a special babyshower and drinking home-made beetroot juice. Through these photos, I was trying to capture the delicate softness of the baby’s breath surrounded in an equally calm setting with the sun shining gently through the linen curtains. I’m playing around with thyme, mint, white spring flowers and baby’s breath that happens to be one of my favourites. While I take a sip of my mahogany juice, I feel spring in the tips of my fingers and I feel a little tingle in my stomach from all the upcoming excitment. ♥ oh.. and don’t forget to try the juice!
