Oh this post is lovely! It reminds me of childhood. My cousin and I used to sneak into a property close to my cousin's house and watch 90 year old Mr. Pitt wander the grounds of his historic family home with his gardener. He was profoundly deaf, so we, as tiny children felt we could not talk to him at all, but we would watch from a distance, hands behind backs,as he would inspect the flowers, and sometimes stretch up from bending, and wave.What a delightful quote also.

How delightfull - I wish I had childhood memories of either of my grandfathers but I lost both of them before I was five - I can imagine all the things shared and learned at grandpa's knee - lovely illustration:)
