Here comes the sun…

This is it - this is our summer, so let's make the most of it. Before you know it we'll all be back in the lingerie department of M'n'S stocking up on an Autumn/Winter tights supply, so let's embrace what we've been given right now. Even if our summers can be a little unpredictable and bucket down with rain at a moment's notice, it's still a great idea to throw a barbecue, don your favourite al-fresco outfit and slap on the factor 30 (although perhaps factor 8 will do - my London-based friend messaged me yesterday and got it spot on: 'Just gone to Manchester for the day. I'm dressed for the Bahamas but alas it's a little chilly and the weather feels more like, well, Manchester. But I'm going to gloss over that - pass the Pina Colada...'.

So, to inspire you to feel the warm glow of summer too and get the cucumbers and strawberries all cubed up for a Pimm's outside, here's a few great garden buys that have caught my eye this week...

Time out for two: Day bed garden furniture with canopy from Homebase (above)

Cherish some quality you time: Hanging chair with cushion from Homebase (below)

Foods up: Summer dining with Jme (below)

Relight my fire - perfect for the evening: Premier Firepit with cooking grid and mesh cover and Premier Brazier with ash tray...
