Jane in Kelmscott Garden
Blunt - Tuesday's meeting in his diary on July 29, 1884:
I spent a couple of hours in Hammersmith with Mrs. Morris and her husband, a democratic socialist. We discussed the merits of his conception of the universe, which I see do not fit with my ideas. However, we agree in many respects. Gladstone says that a conservative is confirmed, too old to change. The House of Morris has fashioned a beautiful garden full of flowers, especially carnations. I like these suburban gardens have more personality than others, and use of space.
The paper also includes a beautiful picture of Jane Morris in the garden in 1884
