_ The days are growing longer, the sunlight lingering in the evenings over gardens which have blossomed into lush leafy havens of shade. Thoughts suddenly turn to dinners outdoors, to plans for Christmas lunches and family gatherings around the table. These late days of spring before summer’s arrival are so full of anticipation and sparkling sunshine. ✨ _ This spring dining scene from a happy family luncheon at my parents.

GOOSEBERRY HILL FARM | I spent the evening with Anna, Geoff, Juniper and their beautiful team up at Gooseberry Hill Farm to celebrate spring. We ate food that Anna and Geoff had prepared over an open fire, and sat around a flower laden dining table inside their little flower shop. After dinner, Mel and Juniper walked me through the gardens before we came back together for dessert, and I learned about how dahlia petals unfold like origami, all the different types of chickens and what to do when young children go off on adventures. Thank you Anna for a magical night under the stars.
