Remember being outside? I don't.
If you're quarantining somewhere with a spacious outdoor area, know that I am deeply jealous of you.
When asked recently, what I'm most looking forward to doing once restrictions are eased, I impulsively burst 'leaving my apartment first thing on a sunny Saturday morning and, without planning to in advance, not coming home again until it's dark!'
That could very well have been the cabin fever talking, but evidently, I'm feeling terribly hard done by to be spending my lockdown lunches without a few squares of patio to chill on or even a front doorstep to enjoy an after-work drink at.
Suffice to say, if you're lucky enough to have a patch of garden to call your own or a teeny balcony that catches some evening sun, I implore you to make the absolute most of it this long weekend.
Below, I’ve gathered some of the chicest buys on the internet that are guaranteed to spruce up any outdoor space (even the smallest ones) on a budget.
