After he died, his sister said his spirit still visited this place. But how do you lose an orange grove? Two miles down a flooded dirt road, I’m looking for a lost memorial and the ghostly remains of old orange trees. The cottage was moved 60 years ago, but the coquina marker to Frederick Delius and the “sound of place” still stands.

    Thanks, Tim! I was not familiar with Delius, more an indication of my ignorance than his prominence. I will be listening to him later today. Great story!
