'My brain is exploding. Trying to make sense out of nonsense, trying to tell you everything (everything?) and all the while time is fleeing. and the air around me vibrates with so many images. Which is great because most of them are British.
Like Cecil Beaton’s photograph of his sister Baba Beaton in fanciful dress. And the splendid houses and gardens they visited. Including Lady Birley and her violet teas-gardening in a jaunty hat. Including the White garden at Sissinghurst designed by Vita Sackville-West, who was long and lean and in love with Virginia Woolf.’
