I love my garden – I feel so lucky to have my own little green space to enjoy at my leisure
But sometimes I have to remind myself of this – it’s easy to get used to our environment and fail to notice what makes a place special
Last Sunday we were lucky to have a blast of beautiful sunshine in Leicester, so I took the opportunity to really embrace my garden
I took a proper close-up look at the plants and wildlife they attracted, looked up into the bright blue sky, took advantage of the sun’s heat to dry my laundry, and enjoyed an afternoon picnic (without the need to actually get dressed and travel anywhere!)
If only the weather forecast looked quite so optimistic this weekend!
Do you have a garden? Do you make the most of it? Where’s the first place you head for a summer picnic?
