Comfort & Joy No.9 - Spring, Gardens & Brook Cottage

The Tent At Brook Cottage with natural Cabbages & Roses linens and blue prints of 3" stripe, Natural Hatley Blue, French Toile Blue, Paris Rose Blue and Provence Toile Blue. Bees linen tablecloths.


While it is still cold outside we are preparing for (and dreaming of) longer days spent outside

In our last post, we went over some planting in the garden and this week we are making all available space ready for the warmer days.

Table Setting with Cerise Hatley linen

 We are washing our outdoor linens in readiness for long suppers and sunny lunches and we still have time to sew up cushions, table cloths and throws

The Pavillion at Brook Cottage

Gazebos, tents, pavilions need to be dusted off and loved again 

C&R Bicarbonate of Soda

The tree house is repainted 

Bees Linen 

Outdoor cushions and Old Rockers are dusted off, recovered and placed outside

The garden is stripped right back so there is room for the next seasons' growth

And we find ingenious places for our tools to be close at hand

 So that we can plant as much as possible
