but with finals looming, not much time off,
so it was nice that we could (nearly) all be together.
Birthday greetings came by phone from the operating theatre.
Watercress, rocket, fennel, blood orange, walnut,
pumpkin seed and pumpkin seed oil salad.
Tray baked meringue with pears, stem ginger, chocolate and almonds.
The birthday cake that we were too full to touch.
Cake is often nicer for breakfast anyway.
' Through the tares of Earth, always shall My Flower look Upward to The Light.'
Primroses under the Bay Tree.
