...We did. I loved every bit of it. That dress...the trees, the lily of the valley (I said it would be Lily of the valley) they way they looked at each other, the Aston Martin.
I cried when he so obviously said to her "You look absolutely beautiful". The children thought this was hilarious.
Felix: "Are you crying?"
Me: "No!" sniff.
Felix: "You are! You're crying! Girls! Mum's crying! Why are you crying?"
Well, it's been an emotional week.
If I had to be ultra picky? Pippa might have chosen a shade or two lighter on the spray tan shade-card and maybe that dress was just a tad too foxy for an event like that - she looked utterly gorgeous though.
Cheer up Posh, it might never happen.
Beatrice and Eugenie...Oh dear.
Earl Spencers daughters? Va-va-voom!
It made me proud to be British. We do do pomp and ceremony really rather well don't we!

...from my garden. White cherry blossom in a jug on the kitchen table. Forget-me-nots grown from seeds that Flora planted last year and pale pink blossom on the espalier apple tree against the wall.
There's exciting goings ons at the bottom of my garden. Will post pictures as soon as it's ready...
