|Your literary voice is uniquely yours and delighting LMA, show-casing your love of a slower and more delightful time-period, with (as I see it) Norman Rockwell scenes, laced with unwavering spiritual convictions, and painted visually as lovely poetic vignettes. For those that are reading impaired: (if they use windows) pressing ctrl and rolling the mouse wheel forward will increase the font size. Enjoyed ... richard|

|I don't remember my French, so it first I thought we were talking my favorite subject–wordplay. However, I see now you are portraying a wealthy grandmother's indulgence on her grandchildren on a given spring day in Victorian times. Delightfully refreshing.

|A total delight, Mary Ann, and oozes warmth, character and charm of an idealised bygone world. Have to echo dear John's sentiments and, for me, I am fascinated by that recurrent word "armwar"; is this a colloquialism of the French, armoire? I love such play on words. The grace of your images and sentiments makes me want to gather lavender for bags and use doilies; love, as Amber, says, where this brings me. But please might you use a larger font next time? I'm afraid my eyes found this quite hard to read, sadly. Many thanks, Kate xx|
