What’s Happening Around Evening Shire

The Story of Evening Shire

Something is Afoot in Evening Shire

It was a Spring day in Evening Shire. Fine and dry with scattered clouds across a bright blue sky. The air was cool, and smelled of growing things. Jayne poked her head out the shop door: across the lane Betsy, the herbalist, was partially hidden behind a hawthorn bush humming to herself; lace curtains fluttered out the front windows of Odds and Bobbs; and looking down the way, Evening Shire’s window boxes were such a riot of color, each seemed to be in competition with the next for loudest trumpeter of Spring. Primroses, cowslips, and yellow rock roses spilled from shop windows into the lane. And every tree bore the bright green of new birth. 

Pulling a chunky red jumper over her head, Jayne called out a muffled, “I won’t be gone a moment!” towards the back of the shop, and headed up the Canterbury road. Peter’s reply, “Where are you going, woman?” was lost to her.
