The Christmas Tree is up, decorations complete....
In a Vase on Monday is a calm affair. We have had rain, rain and winds, but the Monday is calm, damp and cold.
Fuchsia Hawkshead surving the few odd days of frost and dank weather, sitting in a pretty bowl on a wood trivet from Angela Morley bought yesterday during our visit to Cider/Art Open Day. This round table has now been moved to the corner of the conservatory, and will be used to gather some of plants...so the arrangement is moved to
the centre of our large table where we sit for our meals in the conservatory, now joined by a pretty leaf from Geranium clarkei 'Kashmir Purple'.
One of the books we read and talked about at book club lastweek was Turbulence by David Szalay. Yes I would recommend this. Very clever structure and an insight into people's lives, almost like a series of short stories liked with a clever device. Ironic that the title is the opposite of calm, something that I have just realised.
