Magical lavender fields in Provence.
To mark a centenary to the start of the First World War, ceramic artist Paul Cumminsand and set designer Tom Piper created an installation entitled "Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red," after a poem by an unknown soldier. A field of red surrounds the Tower of London, composed of nearly a million porcelain poppies, the flower which symbolizes remembrance in the UK. Photography by Tom Piper.
We loved visiting what I would like to call NYC’s most beautiful flower shop this morning. Set in the Village, and founded by art historian and floral designer Bella Meyer, Fleurs Bella looks and feels as if it belongs in Kyoto. Meyer (in the picture below) is also the granddaughter of Marc Chagall, creates some marvelous flower arrangements and her shop is featured in the John Turturro’s film Fading Gigolo.
