Like the poppy field now sadly fading, I'm sure the house at Valerian Corner was brighter last year.
Where is Valerian Corner? It's on my running routes that go through Farndon Village, a modern house with an old outbuilding with a cat weathervane upon it. In summer, the verge outside it burns with red valerian, attracting bees and on one memorable day, a hummingbird hawk moth.
Normally when I pass it, it means I'm on the way back into town after a long country run, so it is a welcome sight. A beautiful one at this time of year.
Usually when I pass it, Rumbles Cafe and a cup of tea is about 15 minutes away!
