Did you know its National BBQ Week from 4th July, so there’s no time like the present to fire up the old smoky joe and chuck on some delicious summer grub. Not that us Brits need an excuse to dine alfresco as soon as the sun shines! For those of you who haven’t joined the 8.8 million Brits set to go meat-free this year (up 22% YOY)*, turn to page 8 for a SPECIAL DISCOUNT off your first order at Waterperry Farm Shop. They sell a huge variety of homegrown meats from their family farm in the Oxfordshire countryside as well as eggs, pies and eco-refill whole-foods. For those who have opted for a vegan or vegetarian diet or have BBQ guests who are and are struggling for ideas on what to cook, turn to page 9 for a delicious meat-free burger option from plant-based food brand Gourmet Garden. They have created a vast selection of vegan burgers, fillet pieces, mince and sausages and their website contains loads of recipe inspiration, so check them out. It is also time for us to get out and enjoy some foot-stomping, heart-pounding, head-bobbing, local music as festival season is well and truly upon us! Saturday 9th July sees the return of Thame Town Music Festival, with venues across the town and a main stage next to the town hall promising to come alive with a wonderful array of live music. The much-loved and much-missed, Towersey Festival returns in August after a 2 year hiatus (due to covid) in the new location of Claydon Country Estate in Buckinghamshire. It is set to be bigger and better than ever offering a genuine community of music, creativity, friendship, and fun. Turn to our Sound of Music feature on pages 14/15 for more information on both of these festivals. And whilst on the subject of the arts and entertainment, we have another competition for you!

Sue Ryder seeks sponsors for Starlight Hike... Healthcare charity Sue Ryder is searching for local businesses and organisations to sponsor its inaugural Sue Ryder Starlight Hike Thames Valley fundraising event this October. The 5k walk under the stars, which will take place in the beautiful grounds of Pangbourne College on Saturday 22nd October, promises to be a special evening of celebration and reflection. And it is hoped that hundreds of individuals, families and friends from the local community will get together to remember and celebrate the memory of loved ones, raise funds and help Sue Ryder create a future where everyone has access to care and support at the end of their life. Last year Sue Ryder provided over 830,000 hours of care to thousands of families across the country, including from its Sue Ryder Duchess of Kent Hospice in Reading and Sue Ryder Palliative Care Hub South Oxfordshire. Securing sponsorship for Sue Ryder Starlight Hike Thames Valley will mean that Sue Ryder is able to provide even more expert and compassionate care, including ensuring that the end of people’s lives are filled with friendship, family and love in those final moments together. Community Fundraiser Meghan Bentley said: “On average, the Government provides only one third of the funding needed for palliative care services across the UK and so Sue Ryder must rely on fundraising activities, voluntary donations and generosity of its supporters to cover the remaining costs. Having sponsors for Sue Ryder Starlight Hike Thames Valley will make a real difference and help Sue Ryder to continue to be there when it matters.” For more detailed information about sponsorship and the event, contact the fundraising team on www.thamesvalley.fundraising@sueryder.org or call 01189 550433.

Look locally over the garden gate with Lucie Giselle Ponsford

July’s plant in focus is Buddleja (the butterfly bush)... beautiful racemes of drooping purple spires, composite with many hundreds of flowers per bloom, all with a tubular yellow-eyed centre; covered in butterflies and buzzing with bees against the summer sun. Their lanceolate leaves show their silver underside in the gentle breeze, held high on strong woody stems stretching up and away. I can even hear the crickets in the rough grass of the scrubland they so readily colonise, I know you can too! What I love about plants is their propensity to awe and amaze us with their diversity, evolved over millennia in species and more recently with our cultivars in careful and deliberate cross-breeding. The buddleja is one such species, with a cousin overseas you might not have come across? Buddleja davidii is a plant we all know and love, for the most part. Admittedly they have a brutal power as a pioneer weed along our train lines and in fact anywhere! However, I like to think that love overrides when they bloom, as the nectar bar sustains our red admiral butterflies and other species of that beautiful insect. But I also want to give a shout-out to the lesser-known Chilean species. The earlier flowering orange ball or buddlejaglobosa. Now is the time to prune that giant in the garden and really, they can be a huge beautiful profusion of bee-filled, bright citrus orange orbs against the spring sky. They no doubt came from the same evolution of plants that spread and colonised the single continent land mass of Pangea, as they are found in the temperate corridor regions of South America, Africa and Asia; I love how their colours have adapted to the light levels of their respective origins. The Chilean species are hot reds and oranges, suitable to contrast against the lush tropical greens. Some have trumpets more suitable for the forest hummingbirds whereas the Chinese species, such as buddleja davidii, are cool pinks and blue, suitable for the more open climes and radiance of the light levels there. I am delivering courses on The Awe and Wonder of Plants through my Facebook page @mimosagardendesign and our community group @ ilovemynewgarden. Come and join the conversation. Plants are amazing!

With love, Lucie

Unique ways to use marble... By Coulon Stone There’s nothing like the elegance and organic character of marble to add a sense of luxury to a kitchen. Marble has been a popular choice for kitchen worktops for many years, but at Coulon Stone we are receiving frequent requests for more individual marble projects.

Statuesque Tables Marble tabletops have been popular for some time, but typically they sit on a wooden or metal frame. However, tables made entirely from marble have become incredibly popular. These beautiful pieces are statuesque and could be compared to pieces of art. They require a huge amount of skill to hand craft so can be made to your bespoke requirements.

Marble Mirrors Whilst a marble mirror would need to be professionally hung, once secured it would create a show stopping focal point to your space. A marble mirror works well in a bathroom, particularly when matching a vanity unit or flooring. Alternatively, a pink or green marble with a frame thick in width would inject a sense of fun and personality into a maximalist home.

Walls and Room Dividers We have fit our fair share of marble on bathroom walls, in showers and around baths, but more and more people are using their favourite marble to clad walls in their living rooms and hallways. Marble is also being used to divide spaces, like the one pictured. It makes sense that people would want to make use of marble’s striking and natural features in place of traditional wall coverings like paint and wallpaper.

If you are interested in any of the above Marble Products please get in touch by visiting www.coulonstone.com and for more Natural Stone inspiration follow us on Instagram or Facebook
