A very wet garden this morning and still raining. The forecast is for much of the day the same persistent rain but that cannot dampen my spirits this morning after seeing what I consider the play that has everything last night and coming home clutching a bundle of wooden lollipop sticks from the playgoers who had ice-creams in the interval to serve as labels for my new plants. Only in Bristol, the Green Capital of Europe could it happen!
"Cardenio" is often called the lost Shakespeare play. No more. it now has a great deal to recommend it. Last night we had ladies playing the part of gentlemen very competently,very clever scenery,, an intriguing love story, Spanish dancing and music,exquisite costumes, drama to make you jump out of your seat and unexpected and intriguing "Frozen" moments of the action , to mention just a few of the delights. I took my seat with a backache from my extraordinary exertions in the garden last week and stood up at the end free of it. Perhaps the NHS could provide a night at a good play on prescription?
