I’m so sorry, but I don’t. When I created that post that you are referring to, I must have sifted through 40 pages or so of Google search results before I finally gave up. The quote is either given no source at all or listed as ‘Anonymous.’

Holyrood Palace | Edinburgh, Scotland

The Palace of Holyroodhouse, commonly referred to as Holyrood Palace, is the official residence of the British monarch in Scotland. Located at the bottom of the Royal Mile in Edinburgh, at the opposite end to Edinburgh Castle, Holyrood Palace has served as the principal residence of the Kings and Queens of Scots since the 16th century, and is a setting for state occasions and official entertaining.

A heraldic theme depicting the Scottish Lion of Courage and the Unicorn of Strength is apparent throughout the Versailles design-influenced Neo-Classical architecture of the entire palace. For example, the monumental entrance doors of oak have gilded bronze hinges, the main hinges decorated with the Lion and the Unicorn and the upper hinges made as golden boughs of flowering native trees – chestnut and laburnum, oak, rowan and hawthorn. The stone archway is decorated with a carved and gilded garland of Scottish flowers, including daisies and thistles.

Queen Elizabeth spends one week in residence at Holyrood Palace at the beginning of each Summer, where she carries out a range of official engagements and ceremonies. The 16th century Historic Apartments of Mary, Queen of Scots, and the State Apartments used for official and state entertaining are open to the public throughout the year, except when members of the Royal Family are in residence.

There are some dragons, experts in black magic, who are employed in the service of Evil. They use their powers to bewitch dragon servants who, even after the dragon’s death, guard the dragon’s abundant hoard of treasure. These terrible creatures practise black magic and are very difficult to thwart without the help of a very learned wizard.— The Book of The Dragon, by Montse Sant.Artwork by Ciruelo Cabral.

Literary Recipes — Anne’s Raspberry Cordial


Marilla is a very generous woman. She said we could have fruit cake and cherry preserves for tea. But it isn’t good manners to tell your company what you are going to give them to eat, so I won’t tell you what she said we could have to drink. Only it begins with an R and a C and it’s a bright red colour. I love bright red drinks, don’t you? They taste twice as good as any other colour. 
— Anne of Green Gables, by Lucy Maud Montgomery.

Ingredients

  • 4 pints (48 oz.) raspberries, fresh or frozen
  • 1/3 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 12 cups water


Instruments Needed

  • A very large bowl
  • Large spoon
  • Medium saucepan
  • Plastic wrap or towel
  • Fine mesh sieve, or strainer
  • Medium bowl
  • 2 pitchers, or a gallon container


Directions —

  • Clean and rinse the raspberries, then place them in a very large bowl. 

 

  • Pour the lemon juice over the berries. Use a large spoon to stir the juice into the berries.

 

  • On the stovetop, bring 12 cups of water and 3 cups of sugar to a boil. Stir till the sugar dissolves. Remove from heat.

 

  • Pour the boiling water over the raspberries. Allow the water to cool for 1-2 hours to room temperature.

 

  • Cover the bowl with plastic wrap or a towel that you don’t mind staining. Place the bowl in a cool, dark area of the kitchen or in the refrigerator. Let it rest for 24 hours.

 

  • Pour the cordial through a fine mesh sieve to strain.

 

  • Push gently on the solids with the back of a spoon, if you wish, to extract more juice. This will produce a slightly cloudy effect in the cordial, which will settle at the bottom of the storage bottle, but it won’t change the flavour. If you’d prefer a clearer cordial, do not press down on the solids — just strain them.

 

  • Once you’ve strained the juice from the berries, you will find that the leftover berries are mushy and quite sweet. Save them in the fridge; they are terrific served as a topping for ice cream.

 

  • This recipe makes a large batch of cordial, which will store very well in the refrigerator if you use a clean gallon jug. You can easily halve the recipe, if you don’t need quite so much cordial.

 

  • To serve, mix 1 part cordial with 1 part water or seltzer water. If you prefer a less sweet drink, dilute the cordial to taste. Serve cold.

How can I blame the cherry blossoms

For rejecting this floating world
And drifting away as the wind calls them?
