When children visit, we ask them what their favourite thing is at Kelmscott Manor, and then to draw it. The same objects and views are reappearing in the collection of drawings I have in The Brewhouse, but this week I got three excellent drawings of new favourite items : the topiary Icelandic dragon Fafnir by Mabel (above), May's tiny birds in an oval box by Cosimo (below) and WM's bed by Claire (below left). Claire Morris' brother in the pushchair is called William.
