Beautiful photos from Amy Merrick’s Instagram feed, that remind me both of Mrs Smiling in Cold Comfort Farm, whom when abroad would wear lots of white dresses and all the young men in the hotels would fall in love with her, and my friend Sophia telling me that Cairo was a cheap and easy-to-reach place for a romantic weekend.
Katharine Hepburn, Horst.
With hieroglyphs of bushes and trees /
they write and write, /
now pressing on their pens, now not /
Ah on wet paper /
with an invisible brush /
On the soft, rice-like air.

Stunning photos, which recreate the sense of abundance and wealth in Dutch flower paintings and still lifes of the 17th century. Images via Paulette’s own website, Beetles + Huxley, 1stdibs and artsy.
