In celebration of the gloriously sunny weather we are enjoying here in middle England, I offer you a little collection of pretty watercolour images scanned from On The Sands, a Green Beacon 1957 early reader (they always have the best images don’t they?) that once belonged to my very own Mum.

Oh for the bliss that would be sitting under an elegant parasol while my little scamp frolicked in the sea…

Have a truly gorgeous weekend Housekeepers.
