The elusive Hundred Acre Wood has been on our list of must-see places this summer. Nearing the end of our stay in England we ventured into the land of honey pots and Winnie-the-Pooh, retracing the footsteps of Christopher Robin. Our adventures in Pooh Country with British chrildrenswear brand Sue Hill, can be found on the Junior Style blog today.
Our long awaited journey to London is here and we are quickly falling in love with this wonderful city. We've been welcomed with magnificent weather while chirping birds and cascading wisteria abound. We rarely leave the home without a picnic blanket and frequent trips to Sally Clarke's bakery are justified only by the amount of walking we do on a daily basis.
I'm excited to share with you our treasured moments and findings from "across the pond." Over the next four months, we'll be introducing you to wonderful makers from the UK and beyond and will take you on explorations from off the beaten path. The adventure begins here!
It wasn't hard for me to feel right at home here where many seem to share my appreciation for gardens, songbirds and serenity. So we've found ourselves visiting these beautiful green spaces that the English have so painstakingly maintained.
Among the garden crowd, "bluebells" is the buzzword these days. A pretty little blue flower that en masse, creates a blanket of periwinkle in the woodland areas. They can be found right now in London's Holland Park and Kew Gardens. Further afield, the National Trust has a handy guide to bluebell fields throughout the UK.
Without further ado, I leave you with a few of my favorite garden moments from our first week in London. May these be among the first of many adventures as our summer awaits!
