Welcome Back!

Over the last few years I've really missed the posts from bloggers I used to enjoy following. Crumbs that makes me sound like a stalker!

Some I've managed to check up on where they have an email and been glad to see they are OK. Many have gone over to Facebook which I know is not so time consuming but to be honest I always think it's just flashes of "stuff" that doesn't give a real insight to people's lives which blogs can do.

Today I found a new post from BunnyMummy who posts such lovely photographs & great crocheting stuff. She hadn't posted for about 6 months so it was lovely to hear from her again especially as she had some brilliant photographs of Stratford upon Avon. Take a look if you have never been. I've only been once and it brought back memories of walking along the riverbank from the RSC Theatre and seeing a simple plaque on the grass below a silver birch tree planted in memory of Vivien Leigh. 




Sorry the photograph isn't brilliant, you may not be able to read it but it simply says, simply says:
"In memory of Vivien Leigh, 
Actress 1913 - 1961, 
A lass unparalleled". 

It's at the base of a silver birch planted in memory of her.

The words on the plaque come from Charmian at the end of Antony and Cleopatra when she describes her dead mistress:

"Now boast thee, death, in thy possession lies
A lass unparallel’d. Downy windows, close;
And golden Phoebus never be beheld
Of eyes again so royal!"

Very apt!

Sisters Freda & Finch do like to snuggle up together. After having cats that all slept in different places it's lovely to see ...
