I've been going through some of my beautiful vintage images to scan and print copies to take to the ladies this Friday. I've used this one before in my artwork and may have given it to you before but if not.....

in a village garden, and I felt that I was more distinguished by that circumstance
that I should have been by any epaulet I could have worn.
