Yesterday's quote was - Linda Grant's The Thoughtful Dresser.
Can you take many more of these I wonder....not sure if I can!
I ordered flower seeds from Sarah Raven today. Though many things in her catalogue are expensive, seeds are mostly a reasonable £1.95, and if you have the code from Gardens Illustrated there is 20% off.
Visions of a flower-filled garden, jugs of sweet peas, scent, colour, warmth, sunshine, abundance....
Here are the opening words of a book I'm sure many of you will have read:
May 7th. I love my garden. I am writing in it now in the late afternoon loveliness, much interrupted by the mosquitoes and the temptation to look at all the glories of the new green leaves washed half an hour ago in a cold shower. Two owls are perched near me, and are carrying on a long conversation that I enjoy as much as any warbling of nightingales.
