Ash Wednesday

The mist has cleared and the Sun begins to shine over the winter topiary garden. Today is Ash Wednesday and all will remember that they came from dust and will return to dust.

The gardeners remember that the season of cultivation will proceed soon -for the Duchy is known for its gardens and skill in the growing and maintaining of plants exotic and mundane.

This season of Lent the subjects of the Duke will attempt communally and individually to grow a good crop in their wintery hearts so they might more worthily celebrate the great feast of Easter.
