Dear Sir,

We write to you from the trenches of a pernicious war.

We persevere only in the knowledge that our virtuous garden is being tended, cared for and cultivated.

Spring is almost here.

Oh the privilege of Spring.

Yours in truth,

La Femme du Jardin


Join Clockfire Theatre for a world underfoot, where nature sprouts and women wise, write and rise - considerately of course.
