Meet Mrs Agapanthus Crumb!

Harry Roy's song about a pussy cat sounded perfect for the tea dance at the church hall...

There was nothing, but nothing, which Agapanthus Crumb couldn't do with three sticks of rhubarb and a boiled egg. Hardy perennial winner of every possible culinary prize at the Little Hope Village Fete for fifteen years running, she made Mrs Isabella Beeton look like the workhouse cook in 'Oliver Twist'.

As leader of the openly militant wing of the village Women's Institute, she was also an excellent source of gossip and just the person to wrestle sixpence out of Constable Clink at the Christmas Carol Service...

(Big thanks to my cousin-in-law Julia who really did make a marvellous Agapanthus!)
