This lady is well kitted out for the irregularities of our British climate.
First, a spot near the shade (or shelter from rain.)
A kite for those carefree (and breezy) moments. No clouds nearby? Never a guarantee. Just in case, some wellies for the always-imminent downpour, and a nearby caravan retreat for an afternoon siesta.
That's all eventualities covered. I'm tempted to ditch my neutral interiors theme and invite some flowery patterns in for the sticky summer months. These photographs by Craig Fordham, styled by Finola Inger, woke me from my grey-toned stupor, and I've just bought two garish 70s tablecloths for a volunteer appreciation picnic I'm helping to organise. They might not know it yet, but it is going to be themed.
