Last spring saw one the release of the most perfect fashion collections in recent memory, from Alexander McQueen. Based around bees and women as worker bees, this fantastically visual theme was cross-pollinated with the brand's dark romance. Immaculate construction ensured each elegant look was executed in the most high fashion way.

It's St Patrick's weekend in Northern Ireland, and the lawnmowers are limbering up. For a week or two, now, the rainfall has slowed, the birds have been singing for nesting territory, and underpinning their chorus is that lower, guttural sound: the growling of the First Lawnmowers of Spring.

Last year I had an Australian landlord. He was laid back, always asking me 'how're you going?' and never concerned about anything but the Ashes. Caslazur has the same vibe; her girl is cool and calm. She turns heads, not because she looks a million dollars, but because her clothes have it all worked out.

Traditionally, country folk used flower blossom in syrups and wines, and more recently this practice has been taken up commercially, as fragrant blooms are captured in pretty, artisan bottles. The foraging experience can't be replaced, even if the syrup or cordial may now be purchased in a shop. The recipe is easy: steep the blossom in boiling water.

Finally, the sun has shown his pretty face and I can excited for spring, not only to be able to pack away my winter coat, but so that I can embrace the trend for printed trousers this season.
