For some of us, solitude can be a hard piece of paradise to broker. Technology and machinery have freed us from the drudgery of former centuries, but they haven’t freed us from demands—in fact, now, more than ever, demands can follow us everywhere. Six headings follow, describing how to make your own loafery.
The art of pencil sketching and line drawing is a time-honored pursuit that is rewarding whether you are more concerned with capturing the moment and conceiving of a visual expression to pepper a personal journal or a letter with a bit of artistic flare or you want to produce renderings fit for a museum. Headings include Getting Outfitted, Choosing Paper, Line Sampler, and a Value Life-Drawing.
Even if it's too hot, too showery, or if you are just weary of wrangling with the wasps for your supper, these period-accurate recipes that range from expeditious to elegant—though always economical—are perfect anytime you fancy a jolly lunch. Recipes include: Edwardian Egg Sandwiches, Mushrooms on Toast a la Normande, Pizza alla Campofranco, Yolande's Luncheon Cake, and Chloe's Cake.
For this installment of the Garden, we’ve compiled some suggestions that can be done when one only has one moment—or maybe a smidge more—to work in the garden, based on lessons learned from Chloe and Len.

The first day of Seymore’s visit to Drumlanrig Castle includes a gondola-style tour of the legendary collection of greatfolc art housed at the Castle. Following the engineering marvels and breathtaking impressions of the artworks, Seymore is introduced to the studios, workshops, and lytfolc art collection of the Highland Academy of the Masters, which gave me a chance to actually step into the kind of creative environment I hope to bring home to Lanham and my family yet to be.
