Out in the garden ENJOYING SPRING DAYSTHE GOOD LIFE Growing your ownStart-up success OPENING A TEA ROOM(PHOTOGRAPH BY ALUN CALLENDER)…we’re talking about living the dream. It means different things to different people, of course, but I think we’ve covered most bases in this issue. What do you dream of doing? Escaping to an island? Cancelling all your commitments and spending a whole week in the garden? Perhaps you fantasise about leaving the rat race behind and starting a simpler life running a tea shop or taking up painting (who doesn’t?). If you find yourself imagining what it would be like to keep bees or chickens or, better still, run a smallholding, perhaps it’s time to stop dreaming and start actually doing it. Take inspiration from The Good Life on page…

“Spring is nature’s way of saying, ‘Let’s party!’” the comedian Robin Williams once said, and, if that’s the case, May marks the height of the celebrations. With explosions of blossom and seas of bluebells, there’s nothing shy and retiring about this time of year. Enjoy the exuberance before the more mellow months of summer arrive.“The world’s favourite season is spring. All things seem possible in May”Naturalist and writer Edwin Way TealeDON’T MISS!OPEN STUDIOS CORNWALLFrom 25 May to 2 June, potters, painters and printmakers will throw open their studio doors for one of the UK’s most enchanting art trails.

hay-on-wye

POWYSArty, quirky, bohemian… just some of the words that describe Hay-on-Wye. The Welsh border town – established in the 11th century by marauding Normans – this month sees a friendly invasion of culture lovers to Hay Festival (23 May-2 June). Now in its 32nd year, the UK’s biggest literary festival showcases writers, poets, environmentalists, comedians and musicians in 700 events within a tented village at Dairy Meadows Farm, a 12-minute walk from the centre. Here, every shop front, B&B and hostel dons its best bib and tucker to welcome the world to a community of just 1,500 residents (hayfestival.com).WHAT TO SEEHay isn’t short of small-town personality, making it well worth exploring outside of the festival, too. It’s surrounded by the natural beauty of the Wye Valley and all the opportunities…

tales from the blacksmith’s cottage

“Have you seen the new place they’re looking at?” asks my brother. “It’s awful.” This sparks a moment of sibling rivalry because I saw the house particulars only this morning and, as the offspring who hasn’t skipped off to a different continent, I am supposed to get all parental information first – such as house viewings and medical emergencies – and he’s clearly had the jump.“I’m going round it with them tomorrow,” I say, which is really a win because my brother’s in Beirut on assignment, so he’s not seeing it any time soon. We are, however, united in one thing – our strong (possibly excessive) dislike of the prospective property.“It’s really bland,” he grumbles.“Bleak,” I agree.“Poky.”“Horrid.”“That is not a house we’re spending Christmas at,” says the Lawyer.We’re not the…
