You look happy. :)

Ditto what Andrea said. Also, the garden and dwelling look like a fairy tale illustration themselves...lovely.

In a similar vein, may I recommend the Victorian Flower Oracle, recently published by Magic Realist Press in Prague and available from Amazon ? I am the author of the companion book; the images are from the C19th French illustrator J.J. Grandville, beautifully enhanced and adapted by Karen Mahony and Alex Ukolov.We had great fun researching the Language of Flowers and it is mentioned in the introduction.Whether you are "into" oracles or not, this may well appeal to your romantic heart. . .and to all lovers of flowers and their myths.

Andrea and Caroline: Ah, you managed to see the picture I posted of my garden (taken by Alan Lee) for the very few minutes that it was there. I suddenly felt shy of posting a picture with me in it and took it off again. If I could have found one *without* me in it, I would have left it there.

Sheila: The Victorian Flower Oracle looks lovely. Thanks for pointing it out.
