Beggin Your Pardon
10 November 2021
Well waddaya know, I might well just promise you a rose garden after all. That, or a ray of sunshine. Or a floral arrangement celebrating the rise of Imperial Japan. Or just a little hidden wonder, unexpected, revealing itself, almost announcing itself… bursting forth. The shed in the background – currently empty – strikes me as the most perfect place to wake up. This little garden was one of the many surprises that popped up on a daytrip around the city. It was hidden. It’s not advertised. It’s not boasted about. It’s just there, to be discovered.

Peter van der Walt is a fiction author, although you may find some non-fiction and the odd essay out there. Fans can find his newsletter, posts, updates and developments at Currently, he is hard at work on his next story. When not writing, he has far too many interests to reasonably keep up with. He lives with his partner in Devon, England.
