'And do you think,' said the first swallow, 'that the other call is not for us, too, in its due season? The call of lush meadowgrass, wet orchards, warm insect haunted ponds, of browsing cattle, of haymaking, and all the farm buildings clustering round the House of the Perfect Eaves?'
John and I have been answering the call every evening for 11 so far to watch Edwardian Farm, a BBC program that features three historians running a farm in Morwellham Quay as it might have been done in Edwardian times. You may also be familiar with Tales from the Green Valley, Victorian Farm, Wartime Farm, and others. Full episodes are available in various places. I use my iPad to link up to the tv set and we're off.
John enjoys the programs because they show the former ways of doing things, which fascinates him. I have cherries to cook off today and I'll be trying a method shown in episode 11 for its good sense approach to the addition of sugar.
The scenery is rich and lush and I feel as if I've stepped into a painting with each episode.
Thank you for another wonderful month of the Note Card Party. I'm thinking of making a few changes that might make it even easier for participants. Perhaps you have something to share on that note. I'll report back another day on that.
Happy Thursday to you...
