  5. I'm new and looking for some inspo

    My Family and Other Animals by Gerald Durrell is set on Corfu Island and feels like a wonderful holiday in the sun. Another favourite of mine is A Room With a View by E.M. Forster set mostly in Florence.

  7. Your Hobbies, Collections, and Obsessions

    My grandfather used to put empty halved orange or grapefuit peels face down round his tender plants. Slugs and snails love them and congregate underneath. As long as you don't mind disposing of them. I had trouble with snails or slugs eating my new dahlia shoots and had success sprinkling a circle of sawdust round them. I've also heard of using coffee grounds and broken eggshells.

  12. I loved the Cazalet Chronicles too, Marie. I've read them all at least twice and watched the TV series a couple of times. I've just read Miss Buncle's Book by D.E. Stevenson and enjoyed it immensely. I've ordered Miss Buncle Married from the library and while I'm waiting, I'm reading Mrs Tim Gets a Job See there's another in the series I haven't read, Mrs Tim Flies Home. They're real feel good books, the characters are believable and I love her humour.
  13. Willoyd's Reading 2021

    I enjoyed this book too, Willoyd. I've also read Elizabeth and Her German Garden which I found interesting because she mentions old-fashioned roses. I didn't realise she was a cousin of Katherine Mansfield. I like the sound of Lolly Willowes too.
