This week my teaser is from Elizabeth and Her German Garden by Elizabeth Von Arnim, page 56:
I have been much afflicted again lately by visitors - not stray callers to be got rid of after a due administration of tea and things you are sorry afterward that you said, but people staying in the house and not to be got rid of at all. All June was lost to me in this way, and it was from first to last a radiant month of heat and beauty; but a garden where you meet the people you saw at breakfast, and will see again at lunch and dinner is not a place to be happy in.
It's Tuesday, Where Are You? is hosted by an adventure in reading.
It's the end of the 19th century and I'm living on a German estate north of Berlin, enchanted by the wild gardens; I spend every waking moment outside, after leaving the stultifying dullness of Berlin society.
