summer evenings

We'll be dining outdoors until autumn

We'll be dining outdoors until autumn

A couple of months ago, just as we were experiencing an uncanny three days in a row of sunshine, I received a large parcel full of the most beautiful boat-covered picnicware. 'This is it', I thought, 'we'll be dining outdoors until autumn.' How terribly foolhardy of me, right? That probably makes me responsible for the daily showers ever since, doesn't it? 

As I was beginning to give up hope of ever using the Ahoy range from Laura Ashley, at approximately 5pm on Sunday 10th July, the rain stopped, the clouds cleared and we were greeted by that gorgeously hazy, golden summer light calling to us to fill up the picnic basket and head to the countryside. So we did. And it was the loveliest of evenings.
