Watch the way

The Simple Things - - OUTDOORS -

the come-and-go sun dap­ples the new canopy, all lime-green leaves in their spring best. If you dig around a lit­tle, who knows what you’ll find; sticks to make a den… or an ac­tual den? Is it the home of a rab­bit or badger? Look down and deer tracks scat­ter through deep mud, look up and there’s a bird’s nest high and safe, a hole in the trunk is home to a nuthatch. Pause a while and gather round for a flask of hot tea, and share a fruit cake on a fallen log. Ev­ery­thing tastes bet­ter out­doors.

With thanks to our shoot fam­i­lies: the Huer­tas-Ma­sons – Rosie, Mani, Tilda and Emi; and the Plum­mers – Han­nah, Si­mon, Evie and Tris­tan. Our April Show­ers shoot was co-or­di­nated by our art editor Cathy McKin­non. Sadly, Cathy (above) leaves the team this month – she’s mov­ing to the coast and on to ad­ven­tures new. By the time you read this we’ll be miss­ing her al­ready.
