Lark Rise to Candleford 

…watching again… and how many times, I don’t remember. It is so good to watch with beautiful messages…

Beauties, integrity, kindness… these are the golden points of life…

“There Laura spent many happy hours, supposed to be picking fruit for jam, but for the better part of the time reading or dreaming. One corner, overhung by a Samson tree and walled in with bushes and flowers, she called her ‘green study’.”
Flora Thompson, Lark Rise to Candleford

“Candleford Green was but a small village and there were fields and meadows and woods all around it. As soon as Laura crossed the doorstep, she could see some of these. But mere seeing from a distance did not satisfy her; she longed to go alone far into the fields and hear the birds singing, the brooks tinkling, and the wind rustling through the corn, as she had when a child. To smell things and touch things, warm earth and flowers and grasses, and to stand and gaze where no one could see her, drinking it all in.”
Flora Thompson, Lark Rise to Candleford

“When I am dead and in my head
And all my bones are are rotten,
Take this book and think of me
And mind I’m not forgotten.”
Flora Thompson, Lark Rise to Candleford
