At night Mrs. Herbert dreamed that they went into the garden, down a
long walk to a mignonette bed near the vinery. The mignonette was
black with innumerable bees, and Wilburd, the gardener, came up and
advised Mr. and Mrs. Herbert not to go nearer. Next morning the pair
went to the garden. The air round the mignonette was dark with
_wasps_. Mrs. Herbert now first remembered and told her dream,
adding, "but in the dream they were _bees_". Wilburd now came up and
advised them not to go nearer, as a wasps' nest had been injured and
the wasps were on the warpath.
