This weekend is a bank holiday in the UK, so we get Monday as an extra day off. Wonderful I hear you say, and it would be but we have a big black cloud hovering over us, literally. We Brits welcome these holidays with an air of cynicism, because despite all our excitement and preparation for making the most of the 3 days, it is always marred by a bloody great downpour.
So with this in mind, I shall be spending my Sunday in an undercover shopping mall with my dearest girlfriends as we are shopping for our birthday friendship bracelets from each other at Links. The rest of the time I will be cooped up inside, perhaps making a start on making the pelmet destined for my living room window. I've had the fabric for sometime, I just need to motivate myself and get cracking.
At dank times like this, an awe inspiring garden is the perfect antidote. Here's fashion designer Ben de Lisi's London garden, all mediterranean and a perfect example of bringing the inside outside. What a cosy, enveloping little sun trap. The whitewashed timber and big statement planting was created by his partner Gerardo who runs The Chelsea Gardener (aparently). Personally, it could do with a few shots of colour with some fancy blooms but, as I say, that's just a personal thing.
Have a happy weekend lovelies, I hope you have a fun filled one x
