    More interesting places

    Excellent Pictures ! I've visited many of those places. There are several tunnels at Calke. Was yours the one the gardeners used to get to work without being visible by the gentry? I'd love to live in a place with tunnels, or with a folly overlooking a lake, but I think Stokesay Castle would be my favourite.
  3. Homegrown tomatoes were late ripening this year, but now they've started there are lots of them. It's a pity tomatoes can't be sent by email, otherwise I'd email some to the wonderful folk on this site.

    Lovely pictures!! The chives are thriving. I recommend adding hopped chives to scrambled eggs.

    Hale Returns & An Accident Requires Action

    I found the thought of Calumnia being composted particularly delightful. You really are inspired !!! I expect most of your readers are now thinking of people they'd like to compost :-)

    I'm not surprised that Mort liked Saki's Sredni Vashtar. It's one of my favourites too. I often read it when I need cheering up.

  14. I've just re-read Saki's story ''Sredni Vashtar' which I found strangely moving.
