LEGO BOTANICAL COLLECTION Introducing more greenery into your environment can be an incredible way to help you de-stress, brighten up dull surroundings and boost your mood. But what if you’re about as green-fingered as Dutch elm disease? Well Lego has an unorthodox solution for you: why not build your own plant life? No, they’re not expecting you to be a dab hand at genetic modification – instead the company has released two new sets aimed at helping adults to practice mindfulness and create their dream greenery. The 756-piece Flower Bouquet allows grown-ups to channel their inner Monty Don and artfully arrange vibrant plastic petals to decorate their homes. Meanwhile, the 878-piece Bonsai Tree lets them shape their own pint-sized sapling, even coming with pink blossoms and green leaves to mark the…

editor’s letter

Call me a cynic but I feel the last five years have left us poorly habituated to good news. If positive headlines were pathogens, right now we’d have all the natural defences of a tribe of uncontacted peoples. Maybe, deep down, our immunological memory can recall a distant encounter with the optimism virus but we’ve long forgotten how to process it when we encounter it. That’s why it’s been a bit of a shock to the system lately to not only discover that our vaccination efforts are going well but that the government has – on its third attempt – put together a sensible timetable for easing our way out of lockdown.
