What a kind uncle! And I love that Van Gogh - had never seen it.

This was lovely nostalgia trip for me too, as I also read Molesworth, Reach for the Sky, and the Woolpack when I was in my early teens. I had forgotten all about them, so thanks for the memories!


A life long love can be forged in one moment. The unusual circumstances and location must have added to the novelty of the experience too. x


What a thoughtful uncle. On the side of those days of hospital care is that you were allowed to keep flowers in your rooms, or on the ward. During the day at least. Now they would be spirited away to the office until you left for home. Lovely Glads here.

Beautiful photos Jane, the colours are superb. I don't have any Gladdies growing in my garden, but often buy them for my kitchen.

I wanted to reassure you that I'm not going to haunt you forever with my finished works! However, thanks so much for your wonderful quilting book that helped so much with my mum's quilt. I know we chatted about the fabrics at Ray Stitch during the course day - but I will admit the book helped with some of those questions that I never thought to ask. Anyway, I am so pleased to have finished it many weeks later - and have included a link here to my blog for you to have a quick peek if you have 5 secs. Thanks again, look forward to reading more from you. Simone.

My grandmother grew beautiful glads in her garden in Pennsylvania. She dug up the bulbs (she called them corms) and soaked them in Lysol before drying them out in the cellar. Next Spring she would plant them again.
