Hunting again

This morning at a boot sale I bought for ten pence a 1944 edition of Mystery at Witchend illustrated by Gretchen Breary rather than Bertram Prance. The spine is flapping but I'll have to keep it. I have far too many Lone Pine duplicates: I'll keep a really grotty old 1st edition as well as a nice reprint in dustwrapper. I also added another O Douglas to my collection, matching the rest, plus a few more books.

Now I'll go and pot up the scented leaved pelargoniums I bought for 50p each. I love boot sales!
