Weekend flowers

Hello July! Here it is to the beautiful flowers we can enjoy in the holidays months. The weather has not been favourable here in London and June has been described as a very dull and grey month. Today started off with lovely blue skies just to turn into the grey ones with rain which has typically caught me on the bike. All day is breezy and I must say quite chilly. Cycling was an effort.

I have been reading about Georgia O’Keeffe and her stunning paintings, especially flowers. Apparently, she did not like flowers but painted them as they were cheap models which didn’t move. This quote seems to summarise her work very well:

“I found I could say things with colour and shapes that I couldn’t say any other way – things I had no words for”.
