editor’s letter

Cibele Ramm on the hills beyond the Brontë Parsonage (PHOTOGRAPH: AGATA POSPIESZYNSKA) We were inspired by the bicentenary of Emily Brontë’s birth this summer to follow in her footsteps to the Yorkshire moorlands she loved so well, a wild landscape that was the setting for her incandescent poetry, and her only published novel, Wuthering Heights. Brontë’s strange and powerful imagination – considered so transgressive by Victorian critics that her work fell out of favour until the 20th century – might seem too filled with gothic darkness to be the starting point for a summer story; and her early death from tuberculosis, in the winter of 1848, casts a long shadow over the legend of her life. Yet whenever I return to Emily Brontë’s poetry – and indeed, to the…

HELEN JUKES On page 55, the author and tutor of creative writing at Oxford University describes how keeping bees at the end of her garden opened her eyes to the wonderful wildlife in the city. Her first book, A Honeybee Heart Has Five Openings, is published in July. The perfect spot for a picnic ‘A sheltered rock on a blustery hill, midway through a rambling walk.’ Your favourite county ‘Pembrokeshire. The wild Welsh coast.’ The best thing you have ever made from a hedgerow forage ‘Meadowsweet mead brewed with the last of the honey harvested from my beehive.’ LINNÉA AARFLOT ‘I see dressage as an art form,’ says the Swedish rider (right) as she poses with Caruso the horse on page 92. Aarflot grew up in Stockholm and…

dogged devotion

A SELECTION OF WORM LONDON’S FLORAL ARRANGEMENTS FLOWERS RINGS OF ROSES Lessons in floral fine art For the past two years, Worm London’s romantic floral arrangements have decorated many a T&C jewellery shoot, with Katie Smyth and Terri Chandler fashioning all manner of fantastical items, including cascading walls of flowers and delicate adornments wrought from the tiniest of rosebuds. Their first book, Wreaths, has a broader scope than the title might suggest – it’s a step-by-step guide to creating unusual-looking statement pieces using seasonal foliage and blooms, from garlic garlands to floating ‘chandeliers’ of late-summer berries. CG ‘Wreaths’ by Katie Smyth and Terri Chandler (£14.99, Quadrille) is out now. BELOW: PRINCESS ELIZABETH WITH A CORGI IN 1936. FAR LEFT: AUDREY HEPBURN IN 1954 PETS PAW…
