a dress so flowery

'Miss Marriot tying up the clematis and wearing a dress so flowery that many foiled bees buzzed angrily round her for a moment before going on to the less deceiving columbines.' Mollie Panter-Downes It's the real thing this time in Good evening, Mrs Craven


I doubt I'll be wearing a dress like this.


  1. That dress is awesome, and the headscarf, necklace and bangles - you can wear jewellery!

    1. Lilac - I know isn't it a wonderful outfit. I like the daydreaming ability of blogging - if only I had an outfit like that....

  2. I love florals, but I rarely wear them. That dress is beautiful - I don't think I'd like bees buzzing around me, though.

    1. Anbolyn - Isn't it a beautiful dress.

  3. "There she sat, with twenty miles of view behind her, and he placed the dripping baby on her knee. It shone now with health and beauty; it seemed to reflect light, like a copper vessel."
    E.M. Foster 'Where Angels Fear to Tread.'

    I'm waiting, oh, so patiently to hear of the new arrival! /:-)

    1. Share - what a wonderful quote. Baby has arrived & all well. Will post soon, thank you for your thoughts.

  4. Like Share My Garden, I've been checking to see if you have an update, hope all is well. x

    1. Lilac - thank you so much for your thoughts. Just need to download a photo & put a post up. All very well & very busy.

  5. I looooove to give ideas,
    thots you hadn't thot before;
    picturesque words from us, the non-perishables:
    generous and undiluted,
    epic endoorphins - an open door to an
    onomatopoeia Vernacular,
    high-flying, toxic fireworKS from KS
    taking you in different directions
    than where you originally planned...
    O! the mind doth boggle, Joan!!

    Why else does a moth fly FROM the night
    than to a bold, attractive candle Light??
    Don’t let His extravagant brilliance be extinguished.
    You’re creative, yes?
    Then, fly-away with U.S. to the antidote…

    Whether you obtain morality4mortality to wiseabove
    or just glean tantalizing specimens for thy next best seller,
    I realize my penname is quite morbid, yet,
    you shall find in our blogs a lotta (subliminal) moxie
    which has taken this sinfull mortal yeeeeers to compile:
    I lay it ALL out for you, dear, with All-Star-Oxygems:

    Wouldn’t ya love an endless eternity
    of aplomBombs falling on thy indelible cranium?
    An XtraXcitinXpose with no
    An IQ much higher than K2?
    An extraordinarily, anti-establishment victory
    with both sardonic, satirical wit Who’s savvy
    and avant-guarde-humility??
    Here’s what the exquisite, prolific GODy sed
    (with a most-excellent-detector of bull§ht):

    “Faith, hope, and love,
    the greatest of these is love -
    jump into faith...
    and you'll see with love”
    Doesn’t matter if you don’t believe (what I write);
    God believes in you.

    Meet me Upstairs, girl, where the Son never goes down
    from a passionate, lucrative iconoclasm where you’ll find
    of deluxe-HTTP [<- pi] opportunities for excitement BTW.

    Do it. Do the deed, dude. Sign into the Big-Zaftig-House.

    PS “It is impossible that anyone should NOT receive all that they have believed and hoped to obtain; it gives Me great pleasure when they hope great things from Me and I will always give them more than they expect”
    -Our Lord to Saint Gertrude
