Hedge of the Day: St George

Duncan sent me this picture – the juxtaposition of the flag and hedge nicely catches part of what the book is about.

(Always been a bit puzzled by the St George Cross – how did we end up with a mythical dragon killer from the Middle East as our patron saint. He’s not even English and is a bit of a patron saint for hire as there are loads of countries who use him.)

Inevitably there is a bit of rambling about flags and hedges in the book, so I won’t go on about it too much here…

St George's flag, hedge, Britain, Hedge Britannia
