About meFirstly this is not a recent photo, it was taken in about 1963 when I was reading Camus, Gide, Sartre and their like who I have not read since. I was also reading T S Eliot, Ezra Pound and W B Yeats. I still read Yeats.

The Photograph was taken in an Orchard in Devon, England. There is now a supermarket where that orchard once was and I have become a middle class, middle-aged widow with two grown up children and a grandchild. I now live about ten miles from the lost orchard having returned to Devon after many years living in Wales.

About my libraryI have many books collected over the years. The subjects are Gardens and Garden History, Natural history, Science Travel, History, Fiction - both classics and modern, Drama, Poetry, Archaeology, Art and Art History, Textile Art.
