'I never did see the fairies in the bottom of the garden. It was just the right kind of garden for fairies but I supposed my eldest sister Mary was the only one who could see them. I was too bouncy and boisterous, perhaps.

There were squares tiled in Spanish patterns amongst which the herbs grew. There was even a bluebell patch.'
