Friendship, Manderley and Tete a Tete

Some months ago, I had an accident with a glass of red, making our sitting room look as if a grisly event had taken place there. The insurance people were brilliant and we have a new carpet. Rather than the fitters taking away the whole ruined carpet, they cut out the long red section and left us with two large pieces of beautiful cream carpet to give away. Today we delivered the pieces to a Humanist friend and on her wall was the following little plaque which I liked very much.

Friends are crucial to our well being

In the bookshop in Truro, there is a new mural celebrating¬†Manderley,¬†the fictional estate of the character Maxim de Winter which plays a central part in Daphne du Maurier‘s 1938 novel, Rebecca,

Manderley

The little Tete a Tetes in our small wall garden are so lovely, especially against the cerulean sky.
