Hated the book, but love the pictures!Thanks.
Did you like The Treasure Seekers?
Gorgeous post -- just sumptuous! Especially love the shot through the window of the wisteria and, a bit further on, the rich architectural detail. Thank you!
I had to crop out some rather up slightly wheelie bins!
How beautiful is that wild flower meadow - be still my beating heart. Your mystery plant looks like something from the Thornbirds. I love the picture of the stark white room with the chair and the dried flower arrangement - beautiful in its simplicity.
Now of course I want to try red tulips in long grass. The room is the inside of one of the several green bothies scattered around the garden. The chair was very inviting.
I was last there when I gave a talk at some conference aeons ago. The biscuits, I recall, were particularly good. It didn't bring The Secret Garden to mind back then (I was a philistine), but A Little Princess was always my favourite.
Mine too. Am piecing together your memoirs from these tantalising glimpses in the comments box.
What a gorgeous colour that Acer is!
I couldn't quite believe it. The camera does not exaggerate.
There is a lovely garden at Clare College too - have you visited it yet? Do check my page out as I have just been writing about a lovely old house with a stunning garden in Cambridgeshire that you might be interested to visit on one of your jaunts.
No but I will take you up in both your suggestions.
Lucille, I so appreciate your letting us see those pictures of your journey to Cambridge. It's a beautiful place, with so many layers of beauty to discover during various seasons. Spring is amongst the best, don't you think?xo
I think it might be. Winter can be horrid and we tend not to see it in high summer.
Loved "The Secret Garden". And "The Treasure Seekers".
How beautiful. And wisteria - just gorgeous.I love 'The Secret Garden' and have an old copy of it which is much-treasured. But I have no idea what that strange thorny stuff is...
