Bricks & Mortar shop closed to the public…

We used the Covid lockdown as a good time to start renovation and repair work to the building caused by floods of 2020.

Cassell’s Wild Flowers of Britain and Northern Europe Illustrated by Marjorie Blamey “I know a bank where the wild thyme blows,Where oxlips and the nodding violet grows,Quite over-canopied with luscious woodbine,With sweet musk-roses and with eglantine:There sleeps Titania sometime of the night,Lull’d in these flowers with dances and delight;And there the snake throws her enamell’d skin,Weed wide enough to wrap a fairy in:………..” This passage from Shakespeare’s Midsummer Night’s Dream evokes the magic that we feel when we see wild flowers growing and...
