have yourself a very British Summer

31/05/2022 By Victoria

As an unprecedented anniversary the next four days host Her Majesty The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, marking her 70th year on the thrown. Whether a royalist or not, this is a true testament to such virtues as stamina, endurance, resilience & fortitude. So in our minds this extended weekend feels like the mark of a start to Summer here in the UK and a reason to celebrate in contrast to lockdown Summer in the not so distant past.

In true British fashion we can expect some sunshine in places with intermittent showers here and there. Of course, us Brits are very well acquainted with the prospect of changing weather and I’m sure a glass of Pimms or two will be enjoyed regardless.

We are also very excited to welcome June and all that she has to offer. This month hints at the first signs of Summer and we have seen all our Clients projects, plus our Flower Farm and Nursery explode into life. Meadows, vegetables and flowers that were sown back in early Spring have made their first appearances.

It’s an opportunity to reframe and enhance relationships with nature right now so we are all about plot to table, kitchen gardens, plant to plate, etcetera. Self sustainability is at our core.
