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)

Enraptured light: August 31, 2015
This is the last day of August, & like almost all of them of extaordinary beauty. Each day is fine enough & hot enough for sitting out; but also full of wandering clouds; and that fading & rising of the light which so enraptures me in the downs: which I am always comparing to the light beneath an alabaster bowl.
