Myth & Moor update

The Garden at Kelscott Manor by Maria Spartali Stillman

I'm out of the studio today, so there's no Monday Music this week I'm afraid. It's not for any glamorous reason, but because Tilly has a vet appointment over in Okehampton, and the household bookkeeping needs attention. I'll be back at the writing desk tomorrow, and back to Myth & Moor then too. Thank you for all the sweet birthday messages. It was a quiet and lovely one.

Art: "The Garden at Kelmscott Manor" and "Feeding Doves in the Kitchen Garden at Kelmscott Manor" by Pre-Raphaelite painter Maria Spartali Stillman, a frequent visitor to the manor when William and Jane Morris lived there. For more information on Maria, go here. I also recommend David B. Elliot's poignant biography of the artist:  A Pre-Raphaelite Marriage: The Lives of Maria Spartali Stillman & William James Stillman.
