Forced indoors by the weather I finished reading Lara by Anna Pasternak. A fascinating and well-researched account of the life of Boris Pasternak's mistress Olga, the real life inspiration for Lara in Dr Zhivago which I've been re-reading.
It put my little flowery troubles into perspective in a most striking way! (Any good book recommendations would be welcome ...)
If you have been reading Live Simply Simply Live since way back you may remember this moving video. Though entirely different it made me think of opening the garden as a kind of tribute to Barry who helped me create it - gardening was a shared passion from when we first met. We created many gardens together, and he loved this one as much as I did, and do. I couldn't have made it without him.
I have breakfasted outside for a month or so but yesterday I had to bring a tiny bit of outdoors indoors for my repast.
