Week 5 ..
We are all still staying safe at home for now and enjoying this simple and slow way of living. Our much missed and much loved shop is always in our mind but for now, home is the place to be.
Our tiny shop is filled with only things that we love,
one of our very favourite things that we stock are these stunning seeds packets from Grace Alexander flowers.
Dr Grace Alexander is a clinical psychologist, someone who has studied people and how their minds/brains work, how they are in themselves and how they are with other people. She spent ten years (all of her career as a psychologist) working with children and families in care proceedings.
But then ..
“ A few years ago, I knew I needed to ground myself. I wanted to stand on the earth, and soil and grass between my toes. I wanted real, touchable, physical beauty. So I got dogs. So I grew flowers. Sow the seed that became Grace Alexander Flowers.”
Her seed packets are possibly the most exquisite that you ever did see, the Khadi envelopes that she uses for the packaging are not only very beautiful but they support responsible agriculture and business in India. The cotton rag Khadi used comes from T-shirt cuttings, a reliable and sustainable source of pure woven cotton.
I have never really sown seeds very much, but with this simple life and much more time, I have .. along with high hopes and fingers crossed. Every morning I dash out to check their progress.
We still have some seed packets available on our website , ready to be sown around about now if you would like some yourself, or, to send to someone as a gift in this weirdo time. Click here to buy .
Have a lovely weekend xx
