I recently found these images of actress Maureen O'Hara in her 1940s garden, and I'm completely smitten. The joyful look on her face, and the blanket of flowers at her feet is almost too much for my flower-loving heart to handle. I much prefer these lightly staged images of celebrities in old Life magazines, to the gaudy oversharing of paparazzi rags today. Sometimes a little distance is a good thing.
But I digress...flowers.
I've had little luck with flowers in our window box up to this point, but I may have to give it another go. The direct sunlight for almost every daylight hour makes just about everything fry. Any suggestions? Email me to let me know! - b.
