Flowers, films and a book
Joined Love Film DVD rental but then couldn’t think what I wanted to see. Any recommendations? Here’s what’s come so far, rather enjoyed them both:
Another costume drama: The Duchess. Keira plays Georgiana, Duchess of Devonshire to Ralph Fiennes’s Duke. A scenic film full of 18th Century atmosphere. We learn there were three people in the bright young aristocrat’s marriage, which kind of reminds us of the life of her descendant, the hapless Princess Diana. The film of Amanda Foreman’s book.
Encouraging comments about Paris Imperfect from Sweden. They thought Renee Zellweger should play Clio in a film, but I don't think I see her in the role. Would love to have these casting worries.
(At last my Christmas presents are flowering, the four-bloom amaryllis is not just a bulb but a be-good to-yourself because you're worth it, Finest M&S bulb. Have invested in a white orchid too, as you see. If you click on the pics, the flowers look fantastic, she says modestly.)
