I hope you enjoyed the bank holiday Monday.
This week we have an invitation from Phoenix Garden, another one of my lockdown reads and some beautiful Cherry Blossom photos as pictured here.
Have a great week,
WHAT CAN I SHARE WITH YOU TODAY?
The Phoenix Garden has some more dates in the diary for Floristry Workshops in collaboration with the lovely Maggie of Covent Garden Flowers Ltd!

The Body – A Guide for Occupants
Bill Bryson starts at the head and goes down to the feet telling facts about each part of the body, stories about when they go wrong and discoveries made through the ages.
There are interesting anecdotes about famous cases, including Isambard Kingdom Brunel swallowing a penny.
I loved this book, I’m fascinated by how our bodies work and how many things can go wrong with them. I was delighted to read a mention of my own illness in the book – a heart condition called Ebstein’s Anomaly.
Thank you Anna for sending ‘My Antonia’ and ‘Lucy Gayheart’ by Willa Cather in as recommendations.
Goodbye to Berlin
Thank you John for recommending ‘Goodbye to Berlin’ by Christopher Isherwood.
