Talland House: September 22, 2015

Our house, Talland House, was just beyond the town, on the hill. . . . a square house, like a child’s drawing of a house . . .  It stood in a garden that ran downhill; and had formed itself into separate gardens, surrounded by thick escallonia hedges, whose leaves, when pressed, gave out a very sweet smell.
