Suddenly it’s May! After what felt like an eternal winter with exceptionally prolonged cold weather, there is at last the promise of warmer days ahead. With that and the gradual opening up of the country after such a long lockdown, there is a real feeling of optimism in the air. May 17th is the next big date we look forward to as restaurants and hotels reopen. I can’t wait to be back at The Ritz, decorating their elegant rooms with flowers, ready to welcome their guests back.
