  1. A happy accident! Found your website when trawling the web (as usual) for Holmesiana and saw your surname and the ‘Gardening Pixie’ button. ‘Pixie’ is My partner’s pet name and Dan and I appear to share more than just an interest in Baker St.! What were the chances?

  2. Peter, what a curious batch of coincidences! Holmes might even have had something to say about them. “There is nothing new under the sun. It has all been done before.”
