Weekend at Garsington: July 29, 2015

Pool at Garsington 2003
I am paralyzed by the task of describing a week end at Garsington.  I suppose we spoke some million words between us; listened to a great many more. . . . Happily the weather was fine, the food good, & we flowed about happily enough, & without serious boredom. . . . My bed was like layer upon layer of the most springy turf; & the garden is almost melodramatically perfect, with its grey oblong pool, & pink farm buildings, its soft whiteish grey stone & enormous smooth dense yew hedges.
