News from the Hedge


Have been absent for the last while, furiously cutting,folding and pasting the elegant thing that is 'Postcards from the Hedge'. This cottage industry has been pursued in Hugh Bryden's sun kissed garden. Shug2 is a fantastic cook so the toil has been liberally interspersed with mediterrranean food and collapso of the most sumptuous quality. The end product is rather beautiful, I must say. A hand made artists' book with 15 poems by mesel and drawings by Hugh, and a rolled up map/poster with the poems on one side and a stylised route through Scotland on the other. Books for sale for £10 and map/posters for five quid. Damned bargain.


More news will follow on dates etc. Anyone keen on getting their hands on this rare and beautiful product before that could contact me or Roncadora Press, 14 Corberry Avenue, Dumfries.

Glad to hear you've been lost in creativity....even lost in thought, but not lost in general. :)

Does Shug2 get a dedication for keeping those with their noses to the grindstone well fed?

Sounds fascinating. Now I have to go do the math for those of us who consider pounds things to lose off our bodies, not carry in our pockets. ;)

I enjoyed your poems in Poetry Scotland, particularly Moonshine.

Shug, here's where you jump in and say, "Ladies and Gents, step right up and send your $$ or check to the following address so that you too may own one of these priceless gems!"
