Snapdragon social

Years ago I decorated a house party for a Swedish couple - it was in celebration of the anniversary of the Swedish botanist Carl Linnaeus's birthday and the brief was blue and yellow flowers that were known of in Linnaeus's life, so before 1778.⠀⠀
⠀⠀
This wild flower meadow (photographed above Calgary Bay in Mull last year) always reminds me of that event - bluebells and buttercups with cow parsley and pignuts in drifts down the tables, arranged so that they could be taken by guests at the end of the night. ⠀⠀
⠀⠀
I grew them all up in what is now the plum orchard.  I left out the wild garlic just in case.⠀⠀
⠀⠀
⠀⠀
⠀⠀
⠀⠀
⠀⠀
⠀⠀
The allium embroideries went into the shop yesterday- a capsule collection you might say. 
It represents a month of my embroidering and is, I think, my favourite so far. 
I love the structures of alliums and they are a joy to embroider, all the delicate lines. 
There are still a few pieces available, a doorstop, a couple of cushions in each size - you can see them in the ‘what’s new’ part of the website (click through from my profile). Though I embroider every week, I change the theme each month and won’t be doing alliums again for a year.
Home. ⠀
What signifies coming home for you - a physical place, not a metaphorical one. ⠀
⠀
For me it is this curve in the road. The curve just before we turn into the drive. ⠀
⠀
Better still if the verge is full of cow parsley about to burst into fluffy bloom. ⠀
⠀
Even better still if the drive has a welcoming partly of cats in it. ⠀

Today I shall be taking life slow and planting out seedlings in the sunshine
Before we came away I wrote a blog post about how I got stuck in a loop designing the garden. 
A loop of wanting it to be meaningful and clever, to be original, to make use of all my research into the kinds of prairie plants that survive in our climate. 
It meant that we were several years without a garden - looking out onto a rubble or black landscape fabric and weeds- until I realised that what I like about gardening is the doing, the pottering, the seeing things grow and harvesting them. 
I don’t actually like having a garden just to look at. 
The blog post is now up on the website - and I think the lessons learned probably stretch a lot further than gardening. You can read it by clicking through my bio. 
I would love to know if anything similar has ever happened to you.
Venice is all about light. ⠀
⠀
It hasn’t exactly been the best weather while we have been here - a lot of the days have been wet, mainly showery, grey, at times torrential. ⠀
⠀
Everyone says that it is the worst May weather that they can remember. ⠀
⠀
But the light. ⠀
⠀
Somehow it glows through - a mother of pearl sheen behind the clouds, a soft benediction - and makes every corner you turn into a masterpiece. ⠀
⠀
Today we head to Verona for the day and are promised sunshine - but I honestly don’t believe that Venice could have been any more beautiful in the sun. ⠀
How much do you want to know about small business owners?⠀
⠀
It is something that I ponder about a lot. It’s a balance between oversharing and ‘just’ being a business on here. This Instagram account is officially a business one but there always seems to be a lot of me in it. ⠀
⠀
There is also the effect on the actual business to think about. For I am not the whole of Snapdragon. ⠀
⠀
For example - at the moment I’m on holiday for a few days, yesterday’s post made that clear and my Insta stories have been given over to Venetian scenes all weekend. ⠀
⠀
But the business continues as normal - this embroidered herb cushion went into the shop, Valerie is packing up the final boxes of this quarter’s Studio Box subscription, Fiona is making and dispatching orders. ⠀
⠀
When I went to Myanmar in February business went dead - with more orders and emails in the 24 hours after I got home than in the 3 weeks I was away. It is something I need to address. ⠀
⠀
So do you like to see what business owners/makers/designers/writers get up to in their time off? Or would you prefer social media was temporarily abandoned or handed onto someone back at base? ⠀
⠀
(As an aside this isn’t about working on holiday -as most business owners will recognise the integrated nature of a small business life means that stress doesn’t come from posting a photo with a coffee in the morning or making notes of a new idea or taking the time to read a great business book)
Today it is my 50th birthday. ⠀
⠀
I’m celebrating it in Venice, feeling happy, loved, incredibly lucky and very, very much looking forward to whatever the next decades bring. ⠀
⠀
Euan took this photo on the water bus  yesterday headed out to Torcello for lunch. ⠀
⠀
It is a portrait of a woman anticipating good things. ⠀
What flowers have you seen bees on this year?⠀
🐝 ⠀
I spent half an hour a couple of days ago sitting watching bees work themselves around the cirsiums - this is one of the first non bulb perennials to flower in our garden so particularly precious for insects⠀
🐝 ⠀
There were also masses working in the wallflowers next to it - and in the broccoli that we left to flower. ⠀
🐝 ⠀
Next year we will hopefully be getting a couple of hives to put down in under the apple trees behind the cabin - a beautifully sheltered spot. ⠀
🐝 ⠀
I grew up with hives - taking them up to the heather in the car - and now that I don’t need to protect a crop of flowers from pollination (for once a flower is fertilised it fades so can’t be sold), we are finally able to get our own. ⠀
