Since JA always tries to tell us something about her heroes through their houses, I am trying to figure out what she's telling us about Col Brandon. Delaford is old-fashioned, and there are descriptions of the trees and the stewponds. It's not boring, since there are diversions, neighbors and shopping nearby. Does this mean that the Colonel is a traditional, good man, who provides for everyone, and that he's more exciting than we've been led to believe so far? And why does Mrs. Jennings describe the place, instead of the omniscient narrator describing it, as is so often the case in JA's works?
