The Bloomsbury Book Benches #6b - The Golden Sparrow (on The Day of the Triffids bench)

July 14th, 2014, 1pm

It was 22°C with clouds and visibility OK. The breeze was gentle.

Yes, I know I’ve already written a moment about this bench, but having subsequently found this hidden treasure I felt it warranted a moment all of its own!

Hidden away on one end of the bench is this beautiful gilt-edged sparrow.


As Dean explains on his web site, the sparrow “had to be included because of, as Mr Wyndham eloquently stated; ‘their perky indifference to calamity’”.

Christine, Shu and Kelly said thanks.
