Spring is my favourite season by far! I love the freshness in the air, and how everything seems to come alive after winter. I also celebrate my birthday in Spring, which means I can fill my home with ranunculus, sweet peas and blossoms! Fennec, owner of Fox & Co, is just as passionate about Spring as I am.
