The Duchess is taking the advantage of fine weather to spend time in her knot garden at the Palace. It distracts her thoughts from the continuing absence of Alisona. No word has been heard from Shetland for many,many days. The last word had the isles riven asunder by civil war and Alisona's whereabouts being totally uncertain. As Liv checks for herbs and looks for signs of this season's growth she awaits a word of consolation.
