Pastoral


Following my visit to Iceland I flew back into an airport near my parents house and stayed a few days with them. My other sister visited with her daughter and my grandmother drove down for a day, so it was a nice little family reunion. My parents only moved into this house last summer, but they've already been quite active planting in the yard, which is where these lovely flowers are from. My mother was nice enough to let me cut as many blooms as I wanted for a these pictures--I just thought they were a perfect complement to the dress which reminds me of pastoral paintings. All my clothes are coming from suitcases at the moment and rather wrinkly but I didn't have the energy to iron this one--I'll blame my current (although typical) laziness on jet lag...

Your hair looks just amazing here. It seems like growing from a pixie cut would be hard, but your hair looks amazing at any length.

I love the pastoral feeling of this; the flowers so compliment it perfectly.

You have an exquisite style and an equally exquisite personality! I love your hair and that dress is stunning! It reminds me so much of the Dutch old masters paintings, pastoral paintings, and French Impressionism. I am an artist and this dress struck a chord with me. You photographed it so well with your mothers flowers that I couldn't help it, I went ahead and bought the dress myself! LOL As always, you are brilliant and thank you for inspiring us and sharing the beauty!

Apropos of your essay, check out an old movie called "The Boy with Green Hair" if you have not already seen it.

Wow, your parents must be amazing gardeners. The flowers are huge and beautiful. And also, very generous to let you cut them all down again! :)
