Last weekend the Pea Pod deckchair came with us to Hereford. We needed some pictures of this beautiful deckchair out and about and my friend’s garden couldn’t have been a lovelier, more perfect place. This is the apple orchard.
I am writing this from the very hot, sticky studio in central London thinking how peaceful that cool shade looks now.
It was a glorious weekend and the garden was full of delicious, tempting distractions. First of all there was the vegetable garden full of peas and beans.
There was quite a lot of between-shot scoffing. As I said it was idyllic. The courgette flowers even matched the buttercups.
Behind the scenes
The first shot was near the lavender patch – a perfect colour pairing.
Then the fig tree and the gooseberries, which were so tart they made us wince.
We picked some for chutney.
As the afternoon wore on some of us picked red currants.
Some of us had a snooze.
Then it was time for a hay fight and I knew it was time to stop.
What an afternoon, in an English country garden.
