'Diary of an Edwardian Lady'
Recently our local church put on a flower festival and used 'The Diary of an English Lady as inspiration. Each flower arrangement was done by a different person, and yours truly didn't do any! Apologies as some of the photos didn't come ou as well as I had hoped - sun though glass in a dark church is my excuse.
We start with the lady herself going for a walk in her garden.
On Monday she visits the Royal Academy ........
..... for the Summer Exhibition
On Tuesday she has a picnic at Henley, watching the Regatta.
Wednesday is Royal Ascot, where she is looking forward to watching the Royals arrive from Windsor.
And that was so thrilling!
Wednesday was a Masked Ball at Lady Davinia's, where she wore her Lavender Gown with the Amethysts
And this was her mask!
Thursday was a day of rest. There had been such excitement this week that she spent the day reading Mr. Kipling's poems.
Friday was an evening at the Ballet with Rupert. It was Swan Lake and Prima Ballerina was Pelageya Karpakova.
It is my favourite Ballet!
Saturday 12th June, and she is joining Rupert for the Regimental Dinner celebrating the end of the Boer War.
The tables looked quite delightful with the silverware and the candles all sparkling.
Sunday and she went to Church to meet the Rector's new wife......
and then after lunch, a little needlework and reading, before......
... meeting Aunt Dorcas at the Ritz for Tea.
And Bates the gardener had left a beautiful bouquet for Auntie when we arrived home.....
.... and some flowers for my boudoir.
