The Garden was languid in sunshine yesterday afternoon. I set up my ‘Finds’ event and all was very peaceful. Eventually I took my own ‘Finds’ book and some spares and set off into the Garden in search of the public. On the way I found items of interest (a feather, a brightly coloured leaf, a top section of a bamboo stalk, very pointed and green, baby swallows, vast carp) and filled in my book… and talked to various people about gardens and poetry.
When I got back to the Yurt the action started – a sighting of Toffee the Rabbit (she’s a literal garden escape) made this lovely lady sit down and write: I was waiting/ in the bamboo/ for a panda/ to pass by
