He is gorgeous, what a character!
Here is another old pic from me I must get camera fixed.
This is what my mum called a "tunnel of green gloom'. She was very keen on quoting from poems etc, heaven knows where that one comes from. Anyway. Somewhere in Gloucestershire.
Yes! It dawned on me, its from Granchester by Rupert Brooke:
Oh! there the chestnuts, summer through,
Beside the river make for youA tunnel of green gloom,
Deeply above; and green and deep
The stream mysterious glides beneath,
Green as a dream and deep as death.
I should have known as I can recite it nearly all in full, and she could do it all.
