"It was imprudent of us, in the first place, to become authors. We could have become something regular, but we managed not to.
We were lucky, but we were also determined." Roy Blount Jr

"I don’t change the facts to enhance the drama. I think of it the other way round, the drama has got to fit the facts,
and it’s your job as a writer to find the shape in real life."
Hilary Mantel

Sunday Stroll

Aisling at A Quiet Country House has feature called Sunday Stroll. I haven't quite timed it right lately, but today I made the effort!

A handful of freshly picked Lily of the Valley, which runs all over the property

Iberis or Candytuft, underplanted among roses

Spirea, embracing one of the decks

Too much white? How about some green?

Heritage sweet peas sprouting in a tub on the deck--17th century Cupani's Original and Painted Lady from the 18th century.

Wisteria buds

And a bit of pink to finish off the stroll

Bleeding heart
