A Sunday Walk

We had another great Sunday morning walk (this post was done back in June). The day started out cloudy but then the sun came out and there was blue sky between the clouds and it was just beautiful. The Orsay Museum across the Seine with a reflection in the smooth water. The sun reflected in the Seine. Sort of Van Gogh looking. The serene Place Dauphine full of mulberry trees. One restaurant was setting up tables outside for lunch. King Henri IV called the Vert Galan...

Even Garden Writers who Hate Trump are Defending the Rose Garden Upgrade

The announcement from the office of Melania Trump that the Rose Garden is getting an upgrade next month came at the worst possible time. It also came from one of the worst possible sources – a First Lady whose design tastes, whether it’s gilded apartments or Handmaid’s Tale-style Christmas trees – have come in for widespread abuse. (And then there’s who she’s married to, but no need to cover that topic here.) So what does she have in store for the hallowed ground that is the White House Rose G...

How the New Emma Movie Updates the Relationship At Its Core

Jane Austen‘s beloved 1815 classic Emma is saddled with some serious 19th-century baggage: namely, that the romance at its heart pairs the fresh-faced, 21-year-old titular protagonist with a gentleman 16 years her senior, with all the power imbalances attendant to both their age gap and the gender norms of the era. For the new movie adaptation (stylized as Emma.), the solution to this is fairly simple: cast the lovable Johnny Flynn as the male lead, mostly ignore their ages altogether and a...
