Quotations from Virginia Woolf, often (but not always) linked to flowers, usually inspired by what is in bloom, and accompanied by my photos and artwork or that of friends. (Quotations are from the standard American editions: mostly the annotated Harcourt Brace series edited by Mark Hussey)

Weekend at Garsington: July 29, 2015
Pool at Garsington 2003
I am paralyzed by the task of describing a week end
at Garsington.I suppose we spoke some
million words between us; listened to a great many more. . . . Happily the weather was fine, the food
good, & we flowed about happily enough, & without serious boredom. . .
. My bed was like layer upon layer of the most springy turf; & the garden
is almost melodramatically perfect, with its grey oblong pool, & pink farm
buildings, its soft whiteish grey stone & enormous smooth dense yew hedges.
