And here is the Hare emerging out of a long gone garden in a 1957 book Wiltshire by Geoffrey Grigson

  1. Just seen this post for the first time. Made me look up my copy of Geoffrey Grigson's book of Wiltshire photographs that I bought in October 1958 (shows how old I am; I was then at Oxford). My oldest Avebury photograph that shows the hare I find is dated April 1988.
