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.

  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

  6. The flowers on the dress are really beautiful. The dress with flowers looks magnificent.


Ooh how lovely more stripes on the page...
Thank you for taking the time.
