Picnic in the Park

We have been having some glorious weather the last few days in the UK, although it is all set to change tomorrow I believe, it never lasts long here so you have to make the most of each opportunity. My friend and I decided to go for a picnic in our favourite Victorian park, calling in at Marks & Spencer on the way for the food. M&S do the best food for parties, picnics and the like. When we arrived at the park, to our delight we found a brass band playing. There were lots of people with their own picnics and barbecues, listening to the music and enjoying the sunshine. A perfect Sunday.

I really wanted to go for a picnic today too but I was worried that everywhere would be way too busy. I am so sad the hot weather is departing us now though :( it's not fair! I hope it doesn't stay away too long.

Your picnic is so wonderfully decadent - the perfect partner to your all-black ensemble! Glamour in the heat is hard to do but you pull it off in style. :)

OneCraftyFox said...

What a lovely picnic! I am actually going to take your cue on this one... my hunny and I have an anniversary coming up in a few days and I had suggested a picnic. Your post has inspired me to do something different with the food and beverages tho, lol. Luv that long romantic dress too... :)

I didn't read your about section so I'm a bit surprised and in awe that you live in the country I most wanted to visit!

The park is beautiful and I can see that. You will never see those here.
