  spring is in the air. we will soon be shedding the layers and dancing around gardens in our floral frocks.

it's spring fever.  that is what the name of it is.  and when you've got it, you want - oh, you don't quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so!  - mark twain

if spring to you means coffee al fresco with a girlfriend (my photo above is for sale via society6, just saying...) lounging amongst plants (prickly!) or foraging in the countryside for blooms to take home (check out my florist friend rebecca's site ivy, pip & rose for some loose bouquet ideas in the column i help to write 'it's all in the details'.), just enjoy being outside and breathing in nature. and take some of those floral macarons with you. xjo
