and its doors forever open.

be properly appreciated by retirees from a lifetime of bustle in the city—those who have seen a retreating horizon of grey drizzle, noise, and smog give way to the deep,

unspeakable pleasure of a day spent in the garden under high white clouds adrift in a delicately blue sky.

Sherlock spent that day bathed in the gentle warmth of a temperate English sun, breathing air that was fragrant with earth and blossom, alive to a lightly ruffling breeze,

the gliding chirrups of house martins, and the industry of his bees.
