As I write this, the house and the diary are full of flowers! In Little Horkesley, we walked the Village at Rogation-tide; Wormingford’s Flower Festival was at the May Bank Holiday; Mount Bures’ annual Flower Festival takes place on 21st & 22nd June. And June (my wife – birthday not in June!) has been to […]

Ronald Blythe alternates between gardening and Thomas Traherne EASTER WEEK. The lectionary says that George is transferred to 28th. I transfer the tallest branches of my bamboo to a dark, empty bed to make a wigwam for the sweet peas. The birds sing their heads off, and ponies fly about the hill meadow opposite with streaming […]
