Perhaps it seems like just another cat photo to you, but that is probably because you lack a certain sophistication.

Old Herbaceous

June 16th, 2011

I just finished reading Old Herbaceous by Reginald Arkell. If you don’t like gardens and fail to have an English countryside fixation problem, you may not enjoy this book. Especially since there is a severe lack of murders, affairs, scandals, bloodshed, ritual burnings, sex crimes, robberies, looting, pillaging or pirates within it’s humble pages. But if you occasionally crave a soothing read that embalms your mind in a gentle jelly filled with quirky characters and a lush landscape where the thorniest problems involve judging the annual flower show and harvesting the earliest strawberries – I think I may have just the book for you.

If you can’t find me, I’m at the ballfields.
