I love England

Tea and homemade cakes, bric-a-brac for sale on the lawn, sunshine and stretching views of the English countryside. A few weeks ago I went to a charity tea, cake and clothes sale in Hatch, a tiny pocket of nostalgia in the Wiltshire countryside, and it reminded me how much I love England. As children ran through the gardens and men sipped tea in straw boaters I thought to myself - there's nothing quite like this. The gardens were beautiful, filled with lovingly groomed flowerbeds bursting with colour. My favourite flower was this cerise poppy - I had never seen a pink poppy before and the dazzlingly bright colour stole the attention amongst a bed of greenery, and my heart.
