    After offence returning, to regain
    Love once possess’d.”

  • Did the last one offend you, Adam? I’m just messing :) :) :)
    I’m really glad this photo moved you to wax lyrical/poetic… and to elicit such a beautiful Milton fragment is an honour. Thank you so much!!

    I was just in a weird mood and looked up some Milton quotes and found one I thought was thought provoking and hopefully complimentary. Are these actual live pears of some kind that grow like this in Australia?
