This summer solstice evening was spent in the most peaceful place at Knowlton Church and Henge on Cranborne Chase in Dorset.

The Norman church ruins, is on the site of one of the greatest Neolithic and Bronze Age ceremonial complexes in southern England. 

There were a few groups of people doing ceremonies, which was wonderful and the energy was beautiful.

The sun stayed behind the clouds but shards of brilliant light filled the air.

Love and light to all xx

A well earned break took us to Pett in East Sussex, where we stayed in this gorgeous shepherds hut.
For 4 days, I didn't look at the Internet or answer emails, just relaxed in the fresh air, visited Sarah Raven's garden at Perch Hill and Prospect Cottage on Dungeness, lived in by the late Derek Jarman.

I had wanted to visit his cottage since reading his book Derek Jarman's Garden, which made my heart beat madly when I saw it, as it was a little dream of mine, to visit it, for such a long time.

After, we wandered over to the shingle and towards the sea, so I could photograph the plants which inhabit the coastline for my project Against The Elements.
