Benjamin Darnault Pique Nique Rose 2013

It’s been sunny in England.  Not just sunny for England, but properly sunny, with temperatures up in to the 80’s.  This has had predictable consequences.  People who should know better have been outside in ill-fitting PE kit without applying sunscreen.  There’s acres of pink and sore flesh out there.
