Bristol Balloon Fiesta 2015

A few weekends ago I went to Bristol Balloon Fiesta, an annual free event that takes place at the beautiful Ashton Court. The Balloon Fiesta has been steadily gathering more publicity and more visitors over the last few years, and this year it was even trending on Facebook! So it was very, very busy, and the traffic getting into Bristol was AWFUL. After an age sat in traffic jams, we finally parked and were greeted by the beautiful sight of balloons drifting over the rooftops.

Mermaid Treasures

Recently I have felt the need to express my true mermaid nature by surrounding myself with suitably aquatic treasures. First came the seashell tea set I have been eyeing for years. A few weeks later I finally caved and bought this print from Sibylline, after falling in love with the image on her Instagram. I can't resist a red haired mermaid, I can't think why...

Waterfall Woods

It had been too long, and it was all too brief.

The water was the lowest I have ever seen it. But everything around was so vibrantly green, encased in moss and ferns. The air was humid. There is something about this place, I never tire of it. It makes my heart swell. I can't wait to go back.

You can see my previous posts on these woods here, here, here, and here.

Field Walk

Recently I've had this really strong feeling of needing to be around nature, but I haven't had the time or the energy to go for my usual longer walks.

Cute Koalas

Sometimes, for no apparent reason, I will get a sudden obsession with something from nowhere. Right now that thing seems to be koalas.
