Rainbow Stationery

                       
I love rainbows. I also love stationery. So I guess it's not surprising that I own quite a bit of rainbow stationery.

The way that all the colours of the rainbow somehow manage to both contrast and complement is endlessly fascinating to me.

Brighton Pavilion & Gardens


I have wanted to visit the Royal Pavilion for years, and it was on my list of things to do when visiting Brighton, so I was very happy when I wandered into Pavilion Gardens by accident on my first day there. The gardens are beautiful even in winter, with lush green lawns, winding paths and very cheeky squirrels. They are also filled with wonderful buskers playing lovely music, which really adds to the atmosphere.
