March Musing ~ Promise

"On colder days as a boy I would spend hours in the nursery daydreaming among the seed packets piled on top of each other, like an old-fashioned hanging at the Academy. Here the artists has painted the promise of a flaming June with a palette of scarlet and blues. I would pick up the packets and shake them : the seeds of the poppy produced barely a whisper, while the broad bean rattled like a maraca."

~ Illustration by Annie Soudain.


  1. You wonder if that’s where his inspiration came from for the garden at Dungeness.

  2. Interesting quote, Anna. The picture looks like a tapestry don't you think?

  3. I was thinking of Derek Jarman as I enjoyed the picture, and before I saw his name.


All your comments are much appreciated and treasured. I wil try to reply to everyone who leaves a comment, but it may take me a few days, especially when I start spending more time in the garden and at the lottie. I know that you will understand :) I am sure that I will also visit your blog if I have not already done so. If you have any specific questions I will either reply to them here or you can email me at :
