Drove up to Ipswich where even though school had closed for the Easter holidays the lovely librarian, Paula Boughton, opened the library for me. The four foliate heads are just glorious, the building purposely designed so that each window receives the seasonal light. Since this is spring (well hopefully some day soon) I've included that roundel which also represents Youth and the Earth. It was a joy to meet someone who was so enthusiastic, and Paula is like the custodian of the windows.
Thence to Wyken Hall, Suffolk and their magical leaping hares, where Annie and I caught the farmer's market just before it closed, browzed in the shop, had a super light lunch in the big barn, and then a ramble over to the vineyards and back. The purchase of a few bottles of their prize-winning Bacchus wine was of course obligatory. We'll have to go back in the summer when the gardens are open.
