Earth laughs in flowers

3 Sep

I came across the dreamiest blog last week. To me it seems to perfectly capture the beautiful sadness that accompanies these last fading days of summer.

Emerson Merrick is written by New York florist Amy Merrick. However her most inspiring posts come not from the Big Apple but from Elmwood, her tumbledown country escape in New Hampshire.

It came as no surprise to read that Elmwood recently played host to Kinfolk (my latest obsession) who did a photo shoot there this summer for a future issue of the magazine.

There’s such a wonderfully languid feel about all Amy’s photographs. And very lovely flowers, as you’d expect. What I would give to have my own rural retreat like this!

{all Amy Merrick}

Visit Emerson Merrick to get lost in daydreams of Elmwood yourself… be warned, you might never want to come back!

Ps – poetry lovers, the title quote for this post is taken from the poignant Hamatreya by Ralph Waldo Emerson – read it here.

    I absolutely love your blog, your pictures, your inspiration to share the beauties on your blog. I have flagged this for “come back to when I can sit and read and enjoy all the beautiful things. You will be hearing from me again for sure.
