Simplicity


It was the sweet simplicity of life that attracted him to the position of gardener at Laverstone Manor. In those days it was not the sprawling mass of outhouses and debt that constituted the bulk of the kitchen garden now but an ordered layout of raised beds and greenhouses; a far cry from his beloved Florence where the streets ran red with blood for a mispronounced ‘Good Morning.

His tactical advice on the safeguarding of the Manor from incursions by the Faery Rebels proved invaluable, and Lady Gertrude Waters, Melissa’s mother, hired the devilishly handsome Mr. Jasfoup on the spot.

I'm loving how you are going back into Harold's family history. *big smile*

And it's also wonderful to see how, when, and where Jasfoup turns up in all of this. *big big smile*

Hope that you are both feeling and doing a bit better, that you and yours are doing all right, that things are going okay, and that today goes all right for you all.
