Writing Greenwood Tree – and more

What are these flowers ?

Thomas: What are these flowers ? And why here?

Edward: By the heavens, what is this distemper? They are but the wild flowers from without, that Arabella did always desire to have in the house.

Thomas: There is the stench of death about them.

(From Ungentle Sleep)

Yes, Arabella is rather keen on flowers, and while I was listening to M.R.James’s ย The Rose Garden on BBC 4 Extra I suddenly noticed the rose facing me on the desk. I think she would have liked it…wonder if I shall find she has strewn the petals about the place while I am asleep tonight . . .

That’s also why there are falling rose petals in the trailer . .
