Do You Suppose She Is A Wildflower?

Is there anything more glorious than a warm sunny spring day? Last week we had a few days of absolutely gorgeous weather and although I had quite a lot of coursework to do I was determined to enjoy them. Luckily when I put my head down I can get quite a lot of writing done and so after a morning spent working hard with the occasional long look at the blue skies outside I decided I deserved a break and a country walk was exactly what I needed. We decided to go to Waddesdon Manor which is fast becoming our favourite National Trust property in Oxfordshire. It is conveniently located just half an hour away from our home and the grounds are so extensive that there is always somewhere new to discover. This time we decided to follow the Hygge Hike which takes in the perimeter of the estate. It was a beautiful walk through fields bathed in sunshine and past bright yellow flowers. After an hour and a half of walking we came back up close to the house and found this beautiful bank of flowers. I love the bright yellow that seems to spring up from nowhere this time of year but I don't think I have ever seen so many different types of daffodils, and dotted in between were the beautiful snakes head fritillary flower with its stunning snakeskin pattern on the petals. Nature never fails to astound me and I spent a good half an hour prancing about feeling like Alice in Wonderland. 

The jacket I am wearing is actually a cover up for over your swimming costume but when I saw it a few years ago in the Fatface sale I decided it would make such a cute little jacket in the spring/summer. Its made of a really lovely cool cotton fabric and it makes me feel a little bit like a late Edwardian lady. I enjoyed swishing about in it in the sunshine feeling very glam in my vintageesque tribe sunglasses. I am so excited that the season for sunshine walks, picnics and ice creams has begun, I can't wait till it gets warm enough for some swimming in the Thames!
