Hurrah Today I have finished my next book The Communication Generation which will be out next year….
Two majestic four story Georgian houses filled my sight line, gleaming pure marbled white in the early sunlight and I was transported to sunnier Italian climes in my mind.
The facades were decorated with wraiths of lilac and purple wisteria sinensis attached to ancient horizontal wires, draped artfully and sensuously in perfect horizontal homage to the morning sun. As I stared in fascination, swooping swifts darted in and out of the eaves joyously revelling in the pristine, perfumed air.
These were glorious white houses, revealing lush green gardens and most particularly the shades of exquisite purple and lavender that only ancient, gnarled rhododendrons can produce. Everything I could see aligned perfectly and produced a feeling of calm and tranquillity within my soul. I leaned over to open the curtains on either side of the bay window and the purple verdant dream stretched out on both sides as far as my eyes could see.
