Major Armstrong takes his children, Eleanor (Chloe Tucker), Margaret (Alexandra Milman) and Pearson (Joseph Steel) for a Sunday afternoon walk in the hills surrounding Hay-on-Wye. Eleanor (the eldest) observes that her father should have been a botanist because he knows so much about flowers, and he admits he would have liked that - but her grandfather (his father) had other ideas about what was a suitable occupation for his son. (I cannot help thinking that his life might have turned out much happier had he not become a solicitor.)
The children admire the view, particularly of the Welsh hills, and it’s obvious that they’re all enjoying themselves without Mrs Catherine Armstrong along.
