Erasmus Darwin at Home
On our way back from visiting Erasmus Bunny this evening, we happened to catch sight of Dr Darwin through the window, preumably hard at work on some botanical poetry or perhaps making notes on his queer-coloured rabbits. We lingered in the courtyard, but decided it was rude to disturb him. I couldn't help admiring the portrait of the Swan of Lichfield on the wall, though.
