Inspiration in unlikely places

I did an interview the other day and was asked about inspiration.

I'm pretty sure that inspiration is mostly about recognising what's right there in front of you.

Today we went on a walk through a little cemetery called Greenwood. It's just around the corner from the Pixie house. The family who owned our home many years ago are buried there.

I've always loved cemeteries. They are filled with quiet and calm. They are a very good places for thinking... and finding. Even today, damp and dreary, we found inspiration.


  1. What beautiful pictures. Looks like a serene place to rest. My friend used to study lichen in graveyards to learn about the quality of the air. I always found that interesting. Wishing you success after the interview!

  2. Stunning pictures! The colors in nature just amaze me. Have you tried the website that when you put a picture in, it gives you all the colors in the picture, like a paint chip type of thing? I bet the color combos for those pictures would be amazing!

  3. Such inspiration!!! Nothing like a cemetery or lichen or moss to inspire those of the Fae Heart! :0)
