[undated - possibly a fragment?]

If you are likely to be at home the end of next week I would propose taking Lacock for a day in my way to town- <1>

We have beautiful Clusiana & Oculus Solis tulips in the flowerpot - do you know Treteleia uniflora a charming little bulb.

At Abbotsbury <2> Fourcroya gigantea is preparing to flower with a head like a huge artichoke Several under ferns have lived out there two winters. I shall try some- I wish you had come there.



1. Lacock Abbey, Wiltshire, home of WHFT, and on the way to London.

2. Abbotsbury, Dorset: home of WTHFS.
