An English Garden

The quintessential book store?
The quintessential book store?

by C. Margery Kempe

There’s just something iconic about an English garden, and after my busy weekend at EdgeLit, it was nice to relax in my friend’s for a couple of days to recover. I got to watch her cats chase the birds silly enough to try to come into the garden and enjoy the flowers blooming. It’s been a bit too hot here lately (even in Scotland O.O) which some people are grateful for, but I hate being hot.

I put this picture of the bookstore in Market Harborough up because it’s just so lovely. You have to go down one of those narrow little lanes between tall buildings and go through a wrought iron gate and there it is with some lovely greenery obscuring the front just enough to be picturesque.

I didn’t actually buy any books — still trying to avoid that — but I bought some cards and was tempted by the art supplies. And Adele and I bought hats 🙂

I hope the images inspire you to think summery thoughts.

    What a great photo, Margery! I love all of the garden shots, too. Were you a speaker at EdgeLit?

      No, we were launching Fox Spirit Books’ NOIR CARNIVAL and the rest of their fabulous collection (foxspirit.co.uk)! I was ringmaster.

    English gardens are so beautiful, and they always make me think of perfect weather. Not too hot, but warm enough to sit outside and listen to the birds. And that bookstore is truly lovely. Gee, I think I need some tea. 🙂

      Unfortunately it’s been unpleasantly hot here. I always need tea!
