Larmer Tree gardens, Wiltshire, at their most beautiful in June. Definitely worth a visit.
Laura Linney luminous in My Name is Lucy Barton at The Bridge in Rona Munro’s superb adaptation of Elizabeth Strout’s novel.
Loving: Russell T Davies’ adaptation of John Preston’s A Very English Scandal. Bunnies can and must go to the BAFTAs. https://www.theguardian.com/tv-and-radio/2018/may/27/sundays-best-tv-a-very-english-scandal-jonathan-meades-on-jargon
Melissa Scott Miller’s award-winning pictures of North London. http://www.scottmillerart.com/
The South African garden at RHS Chelsea. Robbed of a gold but silver guilt nonetheless.
Stuart is immersed in The English and Their History by Robert Tombs.
Jo enjoyed the Channel 4 documentary The Secret Life of Four Year Olds. Good to know that extroverts don’t make the best team-members when it comes to building a base.
We’ve both laughed at Asylum on BBC4. Congrats to Peter Bowden and Thom Phipps for a witty script.
And at Kingsman.
True West at The Tricycle.
Barbara Winton’s fascinating account of her father’s Kindertransport story at Henley Literary Festival.
The Pajama Game . Michael Xavier (@michaelxavieruk) and Claire Machin our favourites in a strong cast.
Gone Girl – a bit slow to read the book but can’t wait to see Rosamund Pike and Ben Affleck in the movie.
Our neighbour Marianne Majerus’ beautiful photos of plants and gardens.
We’ve just had a week in Tuscany, one of the most beautiful places either of us has ever been. Stuart read a History of the Mediterranean and Jo read Matthew Kneale’s English Passengers.
Jo’s back in London now, as post-production on PUPPY LOVE continues.
