a letter from home

Summer. Just the very word conjures up a multitude of memories and images in my mind’s eye: picnics in woodland glades, open-air theatre, the bubbling laughter of children playing in paddling pools, the aroma from food cooking over an open flame, gliding past wildflower-covered riverbanks in a rowing boat, and even floating over beautiful houses with swimming pools in a hot-air balloon. I am sure I am not alone in romanticising the season and embracing its short-lived virtues with determined relish. Author Henry James, of course, felt that the words ‘summer afternoon’ were amongst the most beautiful in the English language; they are undoubtedly amongst the most evocative. In this, our summer edition, we hope you will enjoy the fact that we have taken the opportunity to celebrate seasonal pursuits, summer…

behind the scenes, i’ve been...

* Seeking garden inspiration from striking show gardens at RHS flower shows and beautiful privately owned gardens such as Abbey House Gardens in Malmesbury and Batsford Arboretum. * Enjoying village scarecrow trails and fetes raising money for good causes and dressing up for a summer ball. * Sewing extra-long lengths of bunting. I love to hang these in the trees and deck tables with candles to set a pretty scene for parties in my garden. * Packing a hamper and seeking out lesser-known spots for picnics, as well as introducing my daughter to the flavour of dandelion and burdock (Fentimans is rather good). My parents introduced me to this unusual taste from their childhoods and just a few sips always make me feel nostalgic.…

KATE FREUD Editor-at-Large, The English Home magazine What is your favourite seasonal pleasure or pursuit in July? I love watching the polo at Cowdray Park in West Sussex. I never really have a clue what’s going on, but I love the fanfare of it all, drinking Pimm’s in the sunshine and everyone stomping divots together. What makes your English home special to you? We refurbished our London home from scratch so it’s the first home we really made our own. It’s also the place we brought our three children home to from hospital, so we will always look on this house fondly. Though I do wonder if now my heart truly yearns for the country. What did you enjoy most about compiling The London Edit (see page 34)? I have relished…
