We went to Petersham Nurseries in Richmond last Sunday – the sun was out, it’s generally not, so one must take the opportunity to get out in it when it’s available! It was glorious, I forgot my camera, again, so once again, the images are my instagram snaps. A terrible habit I am getting myself into.
Some enjoyable things:
Cycle of Fear - anxiety and cycling.
A summer reading list on verhext. I love these kinds of lists. There is a great little bit in Italo Calvino’s if on a winter’s night a traveller that I love and identify with: “The moment that counts most for me is the one that preceeds the reading. At times a title is enough to kindle in me the desire for a book that perhaps does not exist. At times it is the incipit of the book, the first sentences… In other words: if you need little to set the imagination going, I require even less: the promise of reading is enough.”
Sarah Burwash’s Modern Mythology on Beautiful Decay. Love these illustrations, a little reminiscent of Marcel Dzama.
A really sweet free printable from Oh Happy Day, a book baby shower invite.
Glass Houses on sfgirlbybay (dreaming of proper summer, I think!).
The other thing I like to do in Richmond is to walk up Richmond Hill, buy a pint fron the Roebuck pub and sit on one of the benches overlooking Terrace Field and the river. Lovely.
Happy weekends to all!
