Did you know there are 75 different species of tulip? Below are fields of The Netherland's national flower photographed from the air by Italian photographer Simone Sbaraglia. They really are something, aren't they?
I was thinking about doing a blog post about Julianne Moore and her impeccable sense of style etc but I was sidelined by an Architectural Digest article I found about her garden. I was totally enraptured! She lives in a townhouse in the heart of New York's West Village and it seems her flair for clothes and styling extends to her garden!

Wikipedia informs me that there are over 12,000 species of fern. They are the world's most ancient plants having been found as fossils in 400 million year old rocks. Coal is largely made up of fossilised ferns and finally, some ferns are edible (although I'm not sure which ferns are the ones you can eat or where you can find them!).
I've found this very interesting, quirky blog called Beatpie. Unfortunely, I am unable to read it as it isn't in English, but it sure is good to explore! Below is one of my favourite posts which is titled "domesticated". I'm a real sucker for a tree with personality and chutzpah, aren't you?
Sydney is being very autumnal at the moment. We don't have as much of the spectacular red and gold leaf action you get in some parts of the world like Maine in the US or Japan, but it is still very lovely. The weather is crisp, the skies are blue and the camelias are in full flower. It quite possibly might be my favourite season!
I came across this gorgeous Kenzo dress at Meet me at Mikes blog. It started me off on a night of Kenzo image hunting. The man is the master of pattern, is he not? ...and cut!..and colour and texture! I wish I had the occasion, bank account and chutzpah to wear his creations every day of the week!
