Tiptoe-ing Through the Tulips; or A Baroness Amongst the Blooms at the Royal Botanical Gardens

I am sorry I have not yet posted more pics of the sailor dress from the last post. I'll try to do so in the next day or so.  In the mean-time, here are some pics from a lovely day spent at the Royal Botanical Gardens in Hamilton.  We went to see the Lilac Festival, but the tulips were at their most glorious, so we ended up spending more time in this part of the gardens.  Lovely! Side notes: 1) I must admit I was not feeling great today (in part due to a haircut I'm not sure I love yet, as it's shorter than I wanted), so I may look pained in some of the pics.  2) Apparently, the lens of the camera had something on it, so the pictures unintentionally have a sort of haziness to them.  3) While we were taking a photo, a lady shouted out (in reference to me): "Look! There's Mother Nature!"  Uhhhh, thanks (I think?)?




















(Those are "Charleston" tulips behind me! Neat!)

Beautiful flowers and a beautiful dress! I think you're hair looks lovely, it really suits you, and as Su says, it'll grow out before you know it if you really hate it! x

You look beautiful and stunning and perfect, and and... amazing! I know it's hard to get out of a funk where everything seems to be going just a little sour. If it makes you feel any better, I really envy your flawless wardrobe.

I love your hair, too. Also, I would say it was probably a fingerprint on the lens - happens to me all the time and I get a similar effect. ;]

Re: the hair...I guess I should have clarified. I was trying to grow it a smidge to be able to do mid-1930s hair, but now that I've "slept on it," I do think I'm enjoying the sleeker feel of a more early 30s (or even 1920s) length. I'm such a baby, though. It takes a while to come around when my hair doesn't turn out the way I envisioned. Thanks for the sweet compliments, all!
