In order that you, my loyal readers, are not burdened with more misinformation than is absolutely necessary I wish to apologise for and correct an error that appeared in yesterday's posting:
Mrs Cholmondeley ( note the spelling!) is, in fact, a rather fine and large-flowering lavender-blue clematis and not, as I tried to suggest, a rose . . .
It is a rather fine name and is, naturally enough, pronounced "Chumley" which reminds me of all the wonderful ways we have of torturing ourselves with our mother tongue; Mainwaring, Belvoir, Featherstonehaugh - all such wonderful examples . . .
Anyhow, that is that and with that and no more
'til next time
Be Seeing You !
