All shall be revealed later this week. The Head Gardener and I require assistance in uncrating and setting up the sculpture I purchased in Buffalo. It will take pride of place on the courtyard wall by the front door, where all who enter can see it. Many thanks to the sculptor for his careful crating of his work of art; I've decided that he shall remain nameless until I can show you the piece in situ.
