Mrs Daffodil Takes an Easter Holiday

Mother and Daughter on Easter, Mela Koehler, 1917 http://www.mfa.org/collections/object/mother-and-daughter-on-easter-577280

Mrs Daffodil is taking a brief Spring holiday over the week-end, but will return next week. She wishes you all the brightest of sunshine, the prettiest of hats, and the creamiest of deluxe chocolate crème eggs.

Mrs Daffodil invites you to join her on the curiously named “Face-book,” where you will find a feast of fashion hints, fads and fancies, and historical anecdotes

You may read about a sentimental succubus, a vengeful seamstress’s ghost, Victorian mourning gone horribly wrong, and, of course, Mrs Daffodil’s efficient tidying up after a distasteful decapitation in A Spot of Bother: Four Macabre Tales.

Mrs Daffodil will take a brief holiday, returning Wednesday next. If her readers find themselves in need of amusement, advice, or stringent social commentary, the archives are immediately at hand to provide solace.

Mrs Daffodil wishes all of her readers a relaxing, labour-free holiday.

Best wishes,

Mrs Daffodil

Mrs Daffodil wishes her American readers the happiest of holiday week-ends, despite pursing her lips dubiously over the wisdom of the Colony’s choice in declaring its Independence from the Crown, particularly with the upcoming elections. If voters in the States will be guided by Mrs Daffodil, they would do well to cast a write-in vote for HRH Prince Harry as Royal Governor. One feels certain that with a formal apology from the White House, the Crown would be only too pleased to restore the Colonies to the benevolent embrace of the Empire.

In any event, Mrs Daffodil will be taking a brief holiday while the Family is off at Wimbledon and will return Wednesday next. She wishes her readers a safe and relaxing holiday week-end.

To beguile the leisure moments, readers might enjoy these posts about patriotic tableaux in Washington, or the haunted Statue of Liberty, or a special Fourth of July toast.

Since the Family is away on holiday over the week-end, Mrs Daffodil is taking this opportunity to take a brief holiday of her own, possibly paying a visit to the Chelsea Flower Show and returning, refreshed, Wednesday next.

She has posted on floral themes many times, so, to while away the hours for those of Mrs Daffodil’s readers who will be counting the moments until a new post appears, here are some posts pertinent to the topic of flowers.

Mrs Daffodil wishes all of her readers a delightful and restful week-end with opulent picnic hampers and minimal insect accompaniment.
