Foxglove Tales

In the little whitewashed cottage with the thatched roof, and 1666 over the doorway, there once dwelt a lady. The cottage was the neatest, prettiest, best-kept house in those days, with clipped yew hedges, and violets, sweet-williams, periwinkles and cowslips growing in the little garden, among apple-trees and cherries. At the diamond-paned windows hung white lawn curtains, decked with dainty frills, all as clean as a new pin, yet no one had ever seen a servant about the place!

Update July 2016: The featured book is now sold. March House books closed on my retirement in 2015, but I am still happily blogging here at March of Time Books. Your visits are always appreciated.


  1. I'm a new follower and I just wanted to say that I love the topic of your blog! Also, do you do vintage books for older children like the book Shipwrecked on Spider Island?

    Hello Lex

    Thanks for following.

    I have lots of vintage books for older children (but not Shipwrecked on Spider Island - sorry) but stock is coming in all the time - so never say never.
    If I find a copy I will try to remember to let you know but also check out the website from time to time to see if one comes in.
    I’m just going to call in at your blog now.


I really appreciate your comment. Thank you!
Barbara xx
