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)

Long Barn: December 17, 2015
Photo by Sarah Salway
But Vita for 3 days at Long Barn, from which L & I returned
yesterday.These Sapphists love women; friendship is never untinged
with amorosity. . . . I like her & being with her & the splendour – she
shines in the grocers shop in Sevenoaks with a candlelit radiance, stalking on
legs like beech trees, pink glowing, grape clustered, pearl hung.
December 17, 1925, Woolf spends the weekend at Long Barn with Vita. Beginning of their love affair.
