So Spring has sprung, the sun has shone, the days are longer and the windows are open!
In corners of our gardens or on woodland walks primroses start to appear and whilst, we may still spend our days dressed like this little boy, all wrapped up against the elements, we're sure it won't be long till we don our Spring frocks and wellies, garden trugs on our arm and a spring in our step as we step out into our gardens to sow our Summer seeds.
It is certainly an exciting time of the year, a time to embrace the daylight, enjoy the birdsong and the sweet scent of Spring blooms.
With this in mind we have been busy filling our shelves with all kinds of Spring related goodies. A Song to April and vintage wooden chocolate boxes for your Easter delights in our Attic. Petticoats and posies in our Boudoir – a delicious brooch especially for Mother’s Day and a pretty crinoline lady foil picture for your walls.
There are daffodils, poppies and birdsong in our Dovecote, just beckoning you out to the garden. Spring embroidery, vintage sewing kits and more Make Do and Mend in our Sewing Room., all manner of flora and fauna in our Box Room and jigsaws aplenty in our Nursery to keep you busy, from frolicking lambs to bunnies and chicks and velvety rabbits to grace your shelves.
If you fancy a read on the garden bench, why not have a look on our Library shelves? Daffodil story books, Spring time walks. The Darling Buds of May, butterflies and birds all await you.
So if you fancy a Springtime saunter, our doors and windows are open, the shelves are freshly dusted and, as always, there’s a welcome and a vase of daffodils waiting for you in the stockroom.
