With Mother’s Day approaching (pop March 26th in your diary folks) you may find yourself in a quandary as to what to buy your mum for a gift this year. She deserves to be spoiled but what do you get the person who already has everything? A bunch of spring blooms and a box of luxury chocolates? A fragranced candle or a bottle of her favourite bubble bath? Perhaps.

Country Living’s Homemade Iced Tea

Around this time of year there’s nothing quite so lovely as sitting in your garden, the sun on your back and a glass of something chilled in your hand. Georgia of Love on the Wall blog is enjoying the little things, embracing slow living and loving her Country Living magazine subscription with a glass of homemade flavoured iced tea. Cheers!

I think it’s important to admire the beauty of the nature around us sometimes. My parents had hopped off on a plane to America for a holiday, so I was in charge of watering the plants for a few days. They take great care of their garden and it is beautiful all year round. Although I’m not one for clearing out the chicken coops, I loved admiring the nature a little more being in charge of watering the garden. Noticing little juicy green tomatoes forming on the plants and bright red strawberries from the hanging basket I got my dad for Father’s Day.
