It’s March… but feels like Summer! Time for picnics and al fresco living

I can’t believe how great the weather has been this week. It’s only March, but today the temperature went up to 20 degrees Celsius at least. It’s the North East of Scotland here, folks, so that IS extraordinary. July last year saw temperatures drop closer to 10 degrees. Climate change? It might be – which is bad – but I can’t help but having really enjoyed a bit of warmth and the idea of living somewhere hot for once.

All this sunshine has really got me in the mood for outdoor living, picnics and generally lounging about in the garden, beach or park. I thought therefore today I collect some great images that give us some ideas to do it in style. Think lanterns…vintage picnic cases, retro table cloths…lovely tea sets.

I love these lanterns in the tree… http://thevintagehome.net/2012/03/02/its-picnic-time
Some great colourful vintage tablecloths…would love those in my drawer! http://www.flickriver.com/groups/51414710@N00/pool/interesting/

    Ah those pictures pull on my heartstrings a little; here in the southern hemisphere we're going into Autumn and I do have the odd little pang to be back 'home' in time for the British summer. There's nothing like the first few days of warmth after such a long stretch of winter is there? enjoy it.

    Hi Jo, thanks for your comment. Springtime here is usually lovely. We're now back in snow though up here in Scotland! Just as I was getting used to not wearing my winter boots anymore. Have a good autumn!
