Brenda writes: “There were 51 moths in the trap today, 32 of them large yellow underwings and one another blue underwing, our third this year! There are always a few setaceous Hebrew characters and lesser yellow underwings, and it’s a pleasure to see the variety of lunar underwing markings.
Today I had a wedding at Wells then drove to Ely to play in the Ely Sinfonia concert Steve was conducting at the Cathedral. It always feels like coming home since this is where I was ordained. There’s been much debate about the statue of Mary in the Lady Chapel but I’ve grown to like her and I also like to visit Etheldreda behind the main altar. It pleases me that one of my churches (Holkham) is named after her sister Withburga.
