I must say that the sight of Charles Ryder painting ‘Brideshead’ (quite literally, in his case) amused me greatly. When I was twenty-two I painted it at a certain distance, in thick snow, and a big black car used to slither out on mercy missions carrying a thermos for the frozen artist. On one occasion, I discovered they’d sent an empty thermos by mistake. My heart sank a bit when I got the cork stopper out, and I blackened my renditition of an approaching snow cloud a little more than was justified on that day. Curiously, there were inky black thunderstorms encircling the domain when I was last there, in mid summer.

Rare today, I feel it would not disgrace itself if grown alongside many modern pink varieties, and would probably lend character to new progeny of this type.
