At last we have a summerhouse again — it was a drizzle house for a while. The snowdrops are everywhere and the ancient plum tree has already started to blossom.
We took a trip to Lacocks in Wiltshire and the snowdrops outside the abbey were beautiful and I heard my first wood pigeon of the year. That to me is the first sound of spring.
And in the original photographic studio of Mr Fox Talbot, the inventor of the photographic negative, Mr S took some pictures of me in a rather fetching top hat.
And a big thank to everyone at Plume. ‘The House at Tyneford’ has been in the NYT bestseller list for 6 weeks now and they sent me a beautiful bouquet of flowers. (The gorgeous Rob Ryan vase was a birthday present from Mr S).
