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)

The Crocus will Burn: February 29, 2016
Photo by Sue Watts
when the whole earth is sheeted and slippery, some undulation, some
irregularity of surface will mark the boundary of an ancient garden, and there,
thrusting its head up undaunted in the starlight, the rose will flower, the crocus will burn.
