I will be the gladdest thing
Under the sun!
I will touch a hundred flowers
And not pick one.
― Edna St. Vincent Millay
Why do we no longer crave the simple pleasures in life?
For me, I can’t think of any better way to spend a Sunday afternoon…
than just lying on a hill, in a field of flowers with quiet eyes, drinking it all in.

Phil Greenwood is an incredibly talented landscape artist who works mainly on copper plates. His beautiful etchings seldom relate to a specific place but instead envelope ideas and images recalled.
His piece “Blossom” has to be one of my favourites. Like none other, it beautifully captures and conveys the visual wonder and delight of spring. I find nothing says “spring” quite like it.
Every spring is the only spring — a perpetual astonishment.
