Against a backdrop of recent terrible events, here’s a feel-good story to warm hearts. We have a collection of beautiful large garden pots by the talented Yogi de Beer at the gallery and a few evenings ago our beautiful Springer spaniel, with her highly sensitive nose, trotted round and round them, sniffing and searching. Upon inspection, we found a young Tawny owl had become lodged and was unable to free itself. Thanks to Fina’s persistent interest, we were able to locate the baby who, apart from a few ruffled feathers, appeared unscathed. We placed it in a basket high in the branches of a cherry tree, and as night fell we heard the distinctive to-wit to-whoo of both parents swooping in. By dawn it was happily gone, although it does come back to visit periodically at dusk. I like to think that having been recently rescued herself, Fina passed on the kindness to a fellow creature. And now the stunning stoneware urns have another tale to tell when we open next month.
