This debate lead me to think about what it takes to make the perfect British summer's day. For example, roses with blooms as big as dinner plates!
Or roses with more petals than you can count....and
Lavender hedges that hum with bees and smell like a giant bar of soap... and
Warm strawberries slowly ripening in the sun .....
Which get made into jam, to eat with scones for afternoon tea. Perhaps the appreciation of these things should be included in the Prime Minister's list of what it means to be British.
