A Garland of Song - The Owl Service [2007]

Then they took the flowers of the oak, and the flowers of the broom, and the flowers of the meadowsweet, and from those they conjured up the fairest and most beautiful maiden that anyone had seen. And they baptized her in the way they did at that time, and named her Blodeuedd.
 - Fourth Branch, The Mabinogion

She is here, the lady. She wants to be flowers, but you make her owls. Always it is owls, always we are destroyed.
- The Owl Service, Alan Garner

Just discovered your wonderful blog while looking around for anything by The Owl Service, 'A Garland Of Song' in particular.

Don't know your re-post policy, but would be grateful for one here. Thanks so much!
