Picnics are the only reason I get out of bed in the summer. We just scheduled our first Edwardian croquet picnic of the summer, and I can’t wait. These are pictures from the most successful picnic I have yet managed to host - last year’s Death in Venice ramble. 

I miss this lady and her lovely husband so much it hurts, and makes me absolutely loathe this country for not letting me go.

I miss this too. Can’t believe it’s been only a year. Feels like an eternity!
