A garden Astrid? Yes a garden! I don’t often share personal things about me but one fact about me is that I LOVE period dramas. I once made a list (including a map) with all the manor houses in Britain so I could take a road trip and visit them all. So far that hasn’t happened yet so I’ll have to do with pictures. But when I saw this garden by writer Ian McEwan (known from Atonement) I definitely pictured myself in a bonnet and a long dress sweeping though the landscape with a good book (Hello Elizabeth Bennet!). I do wish we could see more of the house though, it’s an early 20th-century manor house in the Cotswolds and from the little peek we’re getting it looks absolutely beautiful! But today I’m just gonna dream about the garden, so lovely!
