Growing in influence There are many things originated by the people of these islands that have gone on to inspire the world. Some are really big, world-changing things, like the long campaign to end slavery, or laws that protect the rights of the individual, or perhaps the works of Shakespeare. But others are tiny, seemingly insignificant things that nevertheless, in a small way, still enrich lives. Garden design is one of those – Capability Brown’s grand naturalistic style has influenced parks worldwide, but I love the equally influential, but more domestic, cottage garden look, quintessentially from the British Isles.

Wetland wonder A National Trust project is underway to transform a stretch of Cornwall’s River Tamar to wetlands, reclaiming what became low-grade farmland in the Victorian era, to provide a rich ecosystem for wildlife. Over the next five to 10 years, it should attract birds, such as curlews, redshanks and little egrets, and creatures like otters and harvest mice.

3 jobs to do in the garden

1 Lift and divide Boost next year’s show of spring flowers. When the leaves of bluebells and snowdrops start to yellow, lift and divide them, ready for replanting. 2 Love your lawn Keep your grass well watered in the hot weather, especially if it’s newly seeded, and encourage healthy growth by using a special lawn fertiliser. 3 Cut geraniums Around the end of June, hardy geraniums will finish flowering, but you can encourage new growth and a new flush of flowers by cutting plants back to the base.…

Letter of the week SHARE AND CARE Here I am (on the left) handing over my copy of Woman’s Weekly to my friend, Helen. She and her husband have just retired after 20 years’ service to the community. I always look forward to passing on the magazine each week and having a friendly chat. It always gets passed on to various friends and family or has sometimes been given to the local doctor’s surgery for others to share. Sandra Bolla, Wiltshire Kind by name… I’ve just read the short story Outsiders in a recent issue of Woman’s Weekly [27 April], and as I reached the end and caught sight of the author’s name, I couldn’t help think that name David Kind was particularly apt! I wonder whether any other readers agree. Sue Ould, Hertfordshire Look what I…

GERI CROUCH, 53 Tell us about your look I’ve spent the past year living in loungewear, so it feels good to ditch the joggers and dress up in something more colourful and springlike. I love the combination of these two pastel pieces, both from Reserved, and have teamed them with a pair of nude strappy heels from Ego. And the best bit of your body? My thick hair. HARRIET DAVEY, 31 Tell us about your look I discovered sustainable brand ohsevendays.com on Instagram and instantly loved this jacket made from 100% organic cotton. Highlighting my waist is something I try to do with most outfits, so this belted style is a win-win. Come summer, I’ll be styling this contrast stitch cover-up over a slip dress with chunky sandals, a straw bag and gold jewellery. And the best bit…
