It’s that time of year when the weather is finally (justifiably) getting a little warmer, and as a result my thoughts are in the garden. I long for the balmier days of summer when everything comes alive outside, and I can gather flowers like the ones pictured above from a post I wrote on my cutting garden favourites.
Spring is definitely on its way, proper Spring I mean, lighter days, showers, milder temperatures and buds starting to creep out from their hibernating position, not the oddly dramatic late Spring preview we had a few weeks back making us all feel optimistic we were further through the year than we thought we were! And with this in mind I have tried to make my March edit of pieces from M&S home an anticipation of the change – lighter bed linen, less robust blankets for overnight chill, vases for displaying new season treasures from nature, fresh smells and linen cushions.
There’s an old much quoted saying isn’t there, from Inter-war economist, and general legend of the Left, John Maynard Keynes that “When the facts change, I change my mind”. Not necessarily the gem of wisdom you expect to find at the start of an interiors post (my god, how many times have I come across William Morris’s “Have nothing in your home that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful” which is sage advice, but has become too much of a catch all maxim for my liking!) but Keynes was in my head each time I thought about change in here!
I have gone a little off tangent from our usual interiors related fare here, this isn’t even a design guide to a destination we’ve recently visited, and my son appears (I think) for the first time in a post, but don’t worry I’m not about to start mummy blogging
