Inspired by Cornflower's books and gardens meme:
The Awakening is sudden, as if Dracula is running his finger down my spine. I step out into the garden, seduced by The Beautiful Indifference of the night. This is How it All Began. I stand silently and listen, The Woman in White in the Heart of Darkness. I imagine meeting my lover, The Great Gatsby, by the garden shed. But I am no Madame Bovary and this is The Coward's Tale. I return to bed and wait for The Sense of an Ending or The Shipping News.
Alas, I'm more of a dreamer than a gardener!
