Comfort & Joy No.9 - Spring, Gardens & Brook Cottage

The Tent At Brook Cottage with natural Cabbages & Roses linens and blue prints of 3" stripe, Natural Hatley Blue, French Toile Blue, Paris Rose Blue and Provence Toile Blue. Bees linen tablecloths.


While it is still cold outside we are preparing for (and dreaming of) longer days spent outside
In our last post, we went over some planting in the garden and this week we are making all available space ready for the warmer days.


Table Setting with Cerise Hatley linen


We are washing our outdoor linens in readiness for long suppers and sunny lunches and we still have time to sew up cushions, table cloths and throws


The Pavillion at Brook Cottage
Gazebos, tents, pavilions need to be dusted off and loved again



C&R Bicarbonate of Soda
The tree house is repainted


Bees Linen
Outdoor cushions and Old Rockers are dusted off, recovered and placed outside

The garden is stripped right back so there is room for the next seasons' growth


Bespoke C&R Printed Canvas



Bespoke Printed Canvas in Hatley Blue, Cerise & Lilac and Bees with matching C&R linen Cushions
And we find ingenious places for our tools to be close at hand


Antique Tools & Bespoke Hatley Blue Canvas
 So that we can plant as much as possible 


Outside the Potting Shed


The Brook Cottage Tree House


So that we can spend the summer eating picnics and relaxing in the sunshine
