Are you in any of these picnic photos from around the area?
More of us than ever are bound to be eating al fresco this spring, with the current emphasis on fresh air.
But sitting on the ground to eat has also been popular over the years, especially with children who love teddy bears' picnics.
It's thought the British picnic tradition dates right back to the Middle Ages, when huntsmen ate outdoors.
But it really became popular after the French revolution. Aristocrats who had fled to Britain got together for elaborate indoor meals, where each person brought dishes and wine.
Gradually the idea caught on, but picnics became simpler and were moved outside, so people could enjoy the nature around them.
