Why this Blog?

A place where I can lament the changing times; for eccentric comments on current affairs and for unfashionable views, expressed I hope, in cogent style; also occasional cris de coeur largely concerned, I regret to say, with myself.


I welcome your comments, so do please write. Please note however that all comments are moderated prior to publication. Whilst I fully appreciate that life can be frustrating, nevertheless, abuse, SMS language and illiteracy will not be tolerated!

631: A Short Break: Some Art

Putin's chest-beating is getting so much on my tits, that I have decided to offer as a break to any readers I may have left, a couple of examples of English art.

The first was done by my heroine, Carrington, who though respected these days, still in my view is not accorded the esteem she so richly deserves.  This one, which demonstrates perfectly her talent for painting flowers is simply titled "Orchid."
