An English Moment

What a wonderful spring break at Schmagerow. We were out and about listening to a lot of stories from the past – from the past of the place, the manor, the wars, the invasions – to the past of the people involved. Then we went on celebrating the present. On Helma’s 80st birthday yesterday she said: I don’t live in the past anymore, the presence is far to beautiful. And in this period of my life I am actually really young. And present. So we celebrated. We took the hamper on the derelict patch to the wild plum treethat presented itself in a bridal gown. And enjoyed a truely present English Moment. And later went back to House Schmagerow and planted 6 apple trees, 2 quinces, 3 pears and 2 cherry trees. For future reference.
