There is nothing better in midsummer when the days are the longest, than making the most of those light evenings and dining alfresco.
As the evening becomes dusky and the swifts and swallows swoop overhead, there is nothing more romantic than lighting some candles and wrapping up in a blanket and watching the stars as night falls.

We don’t get as many balmy evenings as our European partners, so when we do, we need to make the most of them. Mid June, the 21st to be precise, is summer solstice and marks the longest day of the year and to celebrate this, the kind people at Red Lilly have provided my lovely readers, new and old, with a free gift of beautiful coloured tealights, which are perfect to adorn your garden table or hang in trees around your garden.

Good luck and let’s hope this lovely balmy weather lasts all summer long!
