The book (yesterday's post, sorry) came with a subscription to Country Living magazine years ago. It is by Sharon Amos, published by Collins and Brown.
It goes season by season through the year describing the festivals celebrated in this part of the world, full of romantic images (and since when did a little romance harm anyone?) and 'how to' information, it is a visual feast and I've copied lots of the simpler ideas, from floating candles and flowers to daisy chains to the very pretty cake stand I asked for for Christmas a few years ago. I've recently been given an old picnic basket and am looking forward to browsing the charity shops for some china....the Primrose Picnic will be coming up soon!
Lighting candles, opening a bottle of wine, thankin someone with a posy or a cake, celebrations don't need to be elaborate, expensive or time consuming.
So what will you celebrate this week?
