Nature Inspires

If you read the blog you’ll know I’ve been struggling a bit recently. I’ve had a few kind invitations to places but it’s taking me a while to get the energy to go. Recently I went to one of the places and I ended up in my idea of heaven.

It was such a pleasure to meet Martina and her wonderful animals. I would love to have the kind of house she has; animals running around the yard, tea made from herbs growing in her garden, cakes cooking in the oven and just so peaceful.

If you’ve ever ended up at a place where you’ve felt immediately at ease you’ll know exactly what I mean. It’s a rare feeling, especially these days but very magical when it happens. We took a walk along the lane chatting about the people who once lived in the now empty cottages. Martina has many stories and in fact has written a book about one of her neighbours who is sadly no longer with us now. You can read more about the book and a bit more of Martina’s story here.

Not only does Martina make wonderful cakes (that you can find at Drummartin Market on Saturday mornings), she’s also a very talented florist and runs classes that inspire people to create something special with nature. You can find out more about the classes here:

Thank you Tina for such a lovely afternoon, for your hospitality and for inspiring me to take my camera out of it’s bag.
