Why not peruse The Dandy’s review of Balmain de Balmain?

5. Sowing the Seeds


And Gathering Them In

6. Unseasonal Orchids, Particularly Awesome


Indelicate Flowers

The Dandy‘s had some thoughts on Amarige too.

7. Winter at The Orangery


The Whole Tree

8. Blanched Eucalyptus


Whiter Than White?

Oh yes, and That Peacock?


Of course!!

    I love that Eucalyptus Tree, and today I tried Carnal Flower for the first time. Not quite right for me – perhaps it’ll grow on me. Hope you’ll do a review of it some time. Lovely photos as always Sir Dandy!
