Tall hills and ridges advanced and retreated, turned in a great slow Morris dance. High rocks and shadowy hollows hung with blue; green humps and ridges; slopes the colour of hay or of moonlight; the frown of forests.*
And it's time again to join Nor' West Arch Morris Dancers for their annual weekend of dance at Hanmer Springs.
That's only an hour and a half's drive from the Secret Garden but every inch of it feels like one of the World's greatest road trips.
