And this weekend was countryside drives in the golddrenched late-summer sun and dusky old antiques shops; the discovery of a new and utterly charming candlelit wine bar and a chic [secret] one; garden centres and palest pink roses at the supermarket, fireworks and festivities, and late, late nights . . . And also on this new August week, a little note to say thank you — there are have been so many lovely notes, tweets, and instagram comments and [especially] emails [hello, P.K. from South India], lately — thanks so much! Most of you have been following along since the very beginning, and just wanted to say thank you — you really are the very loveliest.
