“Pay attention. Be astonished. Tell others.” – Mary Oliver

Hello! Welcome to my blog. It’s great to have you here! 💙

I share fragments of my soul here, in the form of poems, prose and love letters to the earth, inspired (mostly) by a rewilded garden. Your likes and follows mean a great deal to me, I truly appreciate every one! Grab a cup of tea and come on in, where you’ll find:

Slow medicine for a fast world

Sanctuary where the mind can rest

Authentic voice in a world full of noise

A garden is a nursery for nurturing connection, the soil for cultivation of practical reverence. And its power goes far beyond the garden gate – once you develop a relationship with a little patch of earth, it becomes a seed itself.”

– Robin Wall Kimmerer, Braiding Sweetgrass

A bit about me:

I live close to the sea and the green hills of southern England with my husband and two young children. I’m a stay-at-home mum, holistic therapist, forest school assistant and writer.  I write about nature, wildness, parenting and walking a path with heart.

Thanks! I look forward to connecting with you 💙

  2. Caroline, just started following you having read your elephant journal piece on a girl who travels (because it’s really me you’re writing about). Lovely to connect with a kindred spirit.

  3. I feel like we were separated at birth and you were the one gifted with prose…. THANK YOU…. Your words…about travel, tea and life touch me, and somehow eloquently express all that I feel…. you are appreciated, admired and followed and your words matter to me…. (especially you married and girl who traveled and now what…. I cried…it might have been the wine…but I choose to believe it was the words… I made my husband read it and I printed it out)

  4. Hi Caroline, it’s nice to meet you! I had fun reading your blogs especially your poems! They’re beautifully written! I can’t wait to read more! And oh, I love that you live close to the sea and green hills. That would be a dream come true for me! 💖
