What more?

July 30, 2015 {211/365} "What more?"

“A garden to walk in and immensity to dream in 
--what more could he ask? 
A few flowers at his feet and above him the stars.”

« Un petit jardin pour se promener, et l’immensité pour rêver. À ses pieds ce qu’on peut cultiver et cueillir ; sur sa tête ce qu’on peut étudier et méditer ; quelques fleurs sur la terre et toutes les étoiles dans le ciel. » ~ Victor Hugo, Les Misérables

July 29, 2015 {210/365} Dressing Downton

"Fashions fade. Style is eternal."
~ Yves Saint Laurent

I spent a lovely morning visiting the Dressing Downton exhibit at the beautiful Paine Art Center and Gardens in Oshkosh. As a big fan of the PBS series, Downton Abbey, I could easily picture the scenes that featured these impeccable costumes. No photography was allowed, but you can take a virtual tour at dressingdownton.com.

The flower a tethered butterfly.]

Queen Anne's Lace, summer's regal blossom with
 her crowned head high above the denizens of the meadow
or bent low in benevolent acknowledgement of her kingdom.
