Beauty, Snowdrops and Three Wise Monkeys

08 Feb

I was lending some books to a friend yesterday when a marker fell out and I was reminded of a paragraph that I liked very much. Here it is.

Excerpt from Still Life by Sarah Winman

There is beauty in our garden at the moment, lovely Snowdrops, more and more appearing……..

and more Iris Reticulata, this time  in our Three Wise Monkeys planter, made many years ago for me by a local artist,Jeremy  Beswick.

    Yes, I’ve read and enjoyed all three, but Still Life was definitely the one I loved the best – a very special book.

    Love the quote, Sally, and really loved the book- the best I’ve read in years!

      I loved the book too. Have you read When God was a Rabbit? I enjoyed that one too and Marvellous Ways but loved the new one best. 🙂
