My neighbours are having the outside of their property re-painted. Not before time, so I am immensely pleased. On arriving home today, I find one of their decorators using a flower pot of mine – containing a beautiful, delicate flowering indigo Periwinkle – which I bought as a tribute to Colette’s character Vinca in Le Blé en Herbe – as a platform to stand on. Not amused, I tell him. Now with his huge boots back on terra firma, he exclaims – eyes wide with surprise – ‘Oh, it’s fine. Whatever was in there’s still there. It’s just a bit lower down than it was.’
(You really couldn’t make this one up, could you?!)
