About Me

June Anderson, Under The Plum Blossom Tree, blogger

Hi!  I'm June Anderson, creator of Under The Plum Blossom Tree. This blog began because of my passion for photography and a desire to share my various interests and skills with you, the reader. 

The result thus far has been a visual journey, influenced by my love for nature, fascination with art, and enthusiasm for creating.  

I enjoy gardening, and while I am not an expert gardener, I revel in almost any opportunity to photograph my garden in all its various seasons, as well as the birds and other creatures that visit my backyard.  My interest in nature also extends to my DIY projects, most of which incorporate materials found in nature.

My interest in art history has led me to write a few essays that explore some of my favorite artists of the Modern art movement.  Also, I love to create my own art in various formats and styles, and sometimes will share some of my own art projects.

I've also recently begun to write about the history of design, as it relates to my collection of vintage household items and flea finds, and am actively developing my interior styling skills.

And lastly, I enjoy sharing personal stories about myself and my family; I have two children, Audrey and Takeo, and their dad James is the editor of this blog. Occasionally you'll find essays I've written about our family, and I'll feature some of my scrapbook pages.

An internet friend once left a comment on one of my blog posts, observing that I am 'living a well examined life… and beautiful as well.'  That statement struck a chord with me because this blog has been just that - my own version of exploring the aesthetics of living. My vision from the beginning was to express, through the intersection of photos and words, the ways in which I stylistically interpret my own life.

Thank you for reading, and I hope you will consider visiting me again, Under The Plum Blossom Tree!

And just a note, which I'm sure everyone is already aware of, that the ideas, photos and words in this blog are my own original creations, and if you see something you would like to share, please link with love.
