A meeting at Kew

View from a friend’s flat into a London garden.

I’m travelling to Kew this morning and no time for daily practice but thinking of the couplet Alexander Pope had engraved on the collar of a dog he gave to the Prince of Wales…

I am his Highness’ dog at Kew;

Pray tell me, sir, whose dog are you?

    Made me smile – thanks Jane! Love all dog related literature things – I’ve just been reminded of the wonderful Diogenes in Dombey and Son actually! Also have you ever read that strange story by Wolf – Kew Gardens? C x
