I have just completed the most charming novel. Set in the English countryside from the end of the 19th to the middle of the 20th Centuries, it is the story of a country lad who fell in love with a garden and who, over decades, became the most famous Head Gardener in England. This novel gives glorious glimpses of life in those times, as well as a warmth and human glow as the reader discovers what living at that time, for both the gentry and the common man, was truly like.
A couple of weeks ago Kelli told of visiting the used book store and finding a treasure trove of books. That encouraged me to get online and do the same. Out of that came Old Herbaceous. Thanks Kelli!!
I realize I have been out of pocket for over a week, and I'm sorry about that, but circumstance sometimes conspire to change what we had in mind to do. In the next few days I hope to visit your blogs and to also share, though photo and video, some of our jaunts around the country. I also plan to continue the Culture theme with more of my ravings and rantings. And I will, at some point, publish my June column by guest columnist, James Plyant, on actress Carolyn Jones. Hope you'll join me!
God bless you all...God bless us, everyone.
