1st July 2015

Happy July and welcome to the seventh (yes seventh!) month of A Year of Moments. A creative collaboration between yours truly and the lovely Jeska of Lobster and Swan.

July is quite possibly my favourite month. I love the sunshine, fresh air, picnics, sandals, cut grass and flowers. It’s also the month of my birthday, and a flurry of celebrations!

Jeska and I decided to make July a month of wonder and joy. And we’d be honoured if you’d join us in sharing your joyful July moments. To join in all you need to do is upload your image to Instagram including the hashtag ayearofmoments_joyful, along with mine and Jeska’s user names.

This month I photographed a peony, which was a gift from a friend. Pink peonies are one of the most joyful of flowers, I associate them with the summer and I always hope to receive a bunch for my birthday!

I’m delighted to share Jeska’s joyful image. The muted tones, delicate flowers and pretty vintage book sit beautifully together. It’s light and dreamy, and makes me think of lazy summer days in the countryside.

Thank you for sharing your beautiful nature photographs last month. With nearly 400 images it was tough to pick our favourites. Here are a few that pulled on my heart strings.

I hope you have a wonderful month and I’ll see you over on Instagram!
