The searing heat of august and some heavy rain produced a sudden burst of growth. I came back after only a week away to find the ivy had snaked in and around one of our tiny windows, making a lovely picture of this little statue.
It has been with me a long time, a present from my Godson one Christmas many, many years ago. I can still see his earnest little face as he told me ‘I bought it with my own money.’ Was that the year I gave him a Michael Jackson LP, and he said it was the best thing ever? Treasured memories.
