Next week I am the guest of Miriam Palfrey, long time CFZ member, and am appearing at an evening lecture in Reading library. Details can be found at the URL at the top of this page. Corinna and I are going to take advantage of this and go and see my mama-in-law in Oakham, so I won't be around for some days.
Graham, therefore, will be in charge of the blog in my absence, and everything in the garden will continue to be relatively rosy. Huzzah!
