Gustav is away in Portugal with the winter surfers and so his little London flat is free. We settled in for the night and spent some pleasant time enjoying his unique sense of decor. Gloria takes great delight in teasing him and Gustav pretends to get sulky, but he enjoys being the centre of attention. He will be in the middle of a beach somewhere surrounded by surfers and making sure he is noticed. That is his way.
Gloria describes this flat as his butchelor pad and he hasn't come up with a suitable riposte yet!
These wonders are not the only reason for our visit. We have come to see snowdrops. Particularly we have come to buy snowdrops or, to be completely accurate, Gloria has promised me a snowdrop! We have come to collect.
The event raises money for the restoration of the rock garden which has been 'sleeping' for half a century.
We are lucky to visit a wide variety of gardens and yet there is a great satisfaction to be found in our frequent visits to Myddleton House.
