The promise of summer is a measure of hope. We eagerly await its sunshine, which brings outdoor living, picnics and trips to the sea. So now it’s here, let’s make the most of it. Set a table in the garden and gather friends in the long evening light. Stay up late to see the stars or rise early and run while there is still dew on the grass. Be busy in the veg plot but make time to smell the roses. Take a moment for a midsummer celebration with fresh cheese, honey and homegrown berries. The glass is always half full when you remember The Simple Things.
