Miss C on Dark Florals or Night Blooms in Selvedge Magazine's "Wild" Issue
Here's my latest piece for London's beautiful Selvedge Magazine's "Wild" issue, on dark florals, or "night blooms," as I've titled the article.
Literary and/or Canadian readers will find a reference to Michael Ondaatje's The Cat's Table; cinemaphiles will spy Barbara Stanwyck-esque beauty wearing what I'm calling "floral fatale"; and royal followers may recognize (the name of) Princess Elizabeth of Toro, the lawyer and diplomat from Uganda who was also an important model in the late 1960s. The photo on the opening page is "The Dress Lamp Tree, England," by Tim Walker (2002).
It's an eclectic garden.
