Happy St George's Day


Rose detail
The flags and bunting are out on Boogie Street and the fiddler is tuning up for the Rapper Sword Dancers. I smile benignly out at them from my window in the tower of Stately Zip Mansion and wish them all - and you - the very best for England's national day.
And while we're at it, let's also remember England's great playwright, William Shakespeare, who contrived to be born (1564) and die (1616) on St George's Day.

Will S. got a lot done in a relatively short life, didn't he?

Thanks for this rose of England - it looks as if it really is breathing England's air.

Quite the word-wind when he was roused.
