waterfall, chiming, bath
Vents and exits 10. Water descends among the butresses from a central gutter on the roof of King Charles the Martyr.
I am not one of those who affect not to care what time it is.There are two chiming clocks in the house, which I like to see and hear working. I am glad when, as they do this morning, they both chime at once, and at the same time as the BBC time signal. Though, I have to admit that it is unusual.
A handsome, heavy duty wok, which proved too heavy for its original purpose, has been in the garden now for almost year. In the summer, it overflowed with dark red nasturtiums. Empty through the winter except for rain water, which has collected there, it is appropriated to day, as a bird bath and drinking fountain, by a visiting black bird.
