To A Garden Long Deserted

Spring is on it's way with sunshine and warmer temperatures. Unfortunately, for hermits like myself these pleasant conditions tend to draw a crowd. Life inside the moat is usually rather quiet. There are numerous homes, but probably only 10 families dwelling inside the stony barrier. On the weekends when the office buildings are empty it's rather like living in a ghost town...which I enjoy. Now however, our little museum and the moat itself are beginning to draw in tourists who think sunnies days are an excellent excuse to get outside. I understand their motivations and perhaps would even be among them under similar conditions. However, sometimes it's annoying to watch cars drive extremely slowly past your house snapping pictures with wild abandon. I'm also sad to see my docks and secret corners of the beach filling up with visitors. As the conditions improve and summer draws closer I know things will only grow less and less favorable for the recluse in me...

  3. I feel the same way about big summer crowds! Lucky for me where I live looks exactly like the millions of other acres on the canadian prairies so no one really comes here. But my favourite spots in the city start to fill up. This place looks beautiful though and I am so jealous of your leaves!

  6. A convertible jacket~! I absolutely adore that.

    I see you're embracing the b/w/r color trend you kind of bemoaned as unoriginal a few posts back. It's a chic combination, One that deserves attention!

    I'm not generally a fan of people, but I live in a place so crowded with them, it's unavoidable. Thankfully, my condo complex isn't exactly a destination, so I don't have to worry about crowds. But it also doesn't offer any picturesque views at all.

  8. I know what you mean. All of my favorite places to take photos get frequented by more people as the weather improves, which makes it harder for me to take photos first of all. I'm definitely a bit of a recluse at heart myself.

    I love this photo location and that dress is beautiful!

  9. Hi Rebbeca another great new outfit! White and red really stands out and looks great on you. The combination is eye popping alive. I love it!!! Oh which type of shoes do you prefer flats or heels?

  10. I completely understand your warmer weather woes. I take all of my outfit photos outdoors, and it's so hard to take photos at normal hours when people are everywhere in shots and asking questions. I now try to go early in the mornings, but it's difficult because it's colder and I'd sometimes rather sleep longer.

    Love your bright tights!

  12. @Anonymous, thank you! I don't know which I prefer; I really like flats b/c they're so comfortable, but because I am quite short I've gotten addicted to wearing heels lately. Whenever I have to walk a lot though, it's always flats for me. :)

  13. That dress is so surprising under that dark coat. I think the whole look is darling.

  18. I feel so awkward propping up my camera and setting the time while onlookers watch! Especially living in a big city with so many apartment windows and people!

  19. ughh crowds are so annoying. =( But most of the time the people that stare are people who you will probably never see again haa. So it doesn't really matter. I love the way you wore the red tights with red shoes! I wouldn't have expected that to look so cute. And love the white dress!

  22. I love those tights! They really make the outfit pop.

    Your photos are so dreamy, I can definitely understand dreading spring because of the tourists. You already have the moat, you could always consider getting some horsemen to take care of the tourists.

  24. I love your white dress, and the red together. I love my lake, and I hate when it starts to get crowded. I feel a little strange taking photos with people around.

  30. I agree with the comment about how you style red tights. You're very talented at color blocking and it makes me feel better about wearing all solids. You look lovely here ;)

  32. I adore your tights! I don't see many people wearing bright crimson, but you pull it off so well! Unfortunately it's too warm in Arizona to wear tights anymore so I'll be saving my attempt at bright leg wear for next fall :)

    Love your hair too- a side braid is so romantic!
