I think we have had a such beautiful spring so far. The sunshine has been glorious, and I'm pleased to say that I had my first picnic of the season when I packed my camera, watercolour paints and my wonderful gifted Floribunda colouring book (thank you Leila!) and got arty in the park with some friends last weekend.
And with summer on the horizon, now is the perfect time to prepare your outdoor space ahead of the sunny days to come. And I'm pleased to share the news that B&Q has announced their 2022 outdoor products for the summer season to ensure your garden is as "picture-perfect" as can be for the upcoming extra-long weekends and Jubilee celebrations. I've highlighted my "top picks" from the brochure available at B&Q.
