Lessons To Be Learned

Sue Gillman

Lockdown has been tough for everyone, but there have been positives too. Restrictions on everyday life have made us rethink our priorities. Spending time with family and friends, and belonging to a supportive community, are things we won’t take for granted in future.

Many of us have reconnected with nature over the last few months, either by gardening or by roving in the countryside. If you want your garden to look spectacular in autumn you’ll find plenty of inspiration on page 18. And if you love wildlife you’ll enjoy our feature on how otters are gradually returning to local waterways.

Personally, I have spent a lot of time in the kitchen, practising the recipes in this issue’s bumper food section. I love them, and I’m sure you will too!

Take care and stay in touch!
