Where the wild thyme blows

I know a bank where the wild thyme blows,

Where oxlips and the nodding violet grows,

Quite over-canopied with luscious woodbine,

With sweet musk-roses and with eglantine.


Something is lacking in this? Anyone have any thoughts? I think this is the last from my little Rose series. Although I think I'll be using roses again and hopefully the skirt too!


The title is a quote from a Midsummer Night’s dream by Shakespeare. I actually live right next to the town where Shakespeare was born :).


I was completely blown away by the response to my last photo. 100 favourites! Really!? I had been camping on the night I uploaded it and got very confused that every time I looked at my phone there was another email from flickr! Then got very excited when I found out it had been explored! I love you guys!


I really hope that my next photo will be involving my lovely horse, Star. I have found the perfect field for the shoot although it’s quite a trek to get to it so I may have to catch my mother when she’s in a good mood to help!


This photo is in my portfolio on Vogue Italia :)

    this is so gorgeous and it's definitely not lacking anything, don't worry :) it's so simple and yet so interesting to look at as the light is hitting the skirt in such a subtle and beautiful way. mesmerizing, really :) oh, you live near Stratford-upon-Avon? that's so great, I remember having visited the most beautiful shooting locations there.

    The red against the white is so beautiful and I like how it stands out against the darkness. Its graceful and elegant.

    Marie Dücker Thank you, Yes, I live in a village near Stratford. It does have some lovely locations! Especially with the Cotswolds nearby. Can't wait till I can drive so they are more accessible!
