Food for thought...

Now that midwinter delivered a little rain and a lot of cold and short days, I often return to the late Mirabel Osler when aching bones demand rest by a warm hearth.Then,a drift into the cheerful musings of a generous observer is a beautiful thing.

When seeking diversion more than advice,I find the English gardener and writer to do be both a delight and a consolation .When all else is quiet and the privacy she refers to as an elusive commodity allows for an uninterrupted daylight hour it is often a well thumbed. A Garden which finds its the Eye of the Garden which finds its way to the fireside table.Although she gardened in a different hemisphere with different  plants.

her enthusiasm for gardening as a way of life,her veracity alongside her often idiosyncratic views always make me smile.
A lots of pleasure in the genre of literature is not only for private garden owners.There are particularly in Melbourne.
It is more to write about in here but I has my time was stopping with in here.but I like very much to more reading myself about Gwen Ford.

Sis, you have made me curious about Gwen Ford. I will look her up.

I love gardening too but I don't do much of it any longer. Here it is Summer and it is so hot and uncomfortable outside. I have lways loved your garden since the days of MSN Live Spaces when you posted so many pictures of your roses.

Love to you.
XOXOXOX Sis, Katie, Miyuki and Victoria.

Dearest Michiko,
Midwinter sounds like a perfect time for drifting off while reading. It soothes the mind and indeed causes food for thought.
Lots of love to you,
Mariette

Dearest Michiko-san,
Oh, I've never heard of Gwen Ford, either. But I really admire you to get the incentive from her! Keep warm, my friend.

庭師でも作家でもある方なんですね! 本当に、寒い冬は暖かくして本を御覧になるのが一番ですね。"food for thought" (*^_^*)

Sending you lots of love and hugs from Japan, xoxo Miyako*
