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.
