Do you recognise these lines ?

At the end of the garden stood a hedge of flaming poinsettias higher than anything in the world ... Their green went out against the blue sky, but the red poinsettias he could just see … as his legs grew under him, he found that by scaling an enormous rampart - three foot of broken-down mud wall at the end of the garden - he could come into a ready-made kingdom, where everyone was his slave.
