APPLES AND BLACKBERRIES - SEPTEMBER 2018

I think most schools have started this week which, I suppose, marks the end of summer - for some that probably feels rather sad, but there is so much to celebrate. The English summer was amazing, but I am loving the fact that everywhere has turned green again and looks so beautifully fresh. The hedgerows are full of blackberries, and trees are laden with apples, pears and all sorts of other fruits. The conkers will be here any minute too! It really is one of my favourite times of year. It's not only the fruit trees that are weighed down - the shelves in Fino HQ are...

SPRING WAS SO NEARLY HERE - March 2018

SPRING WAS SO NEARLY HERE - FEBRUARY 2018 Last weekend it really seemed like spring was here - dainty little snowdrops, the first daffodils, and shoots appearing all over the garden ... and now the Beast of the East has arrived and it is all change. Until today we had got away with it here in Oxford but as I am writing this the snow has started to fall and everywhere is turning white. At times like this I can understand people asking me why we came back from Spain! Despite plummeting temperatures outside all is good here at Fino HQ...
