|The bluebells reminded me of the ones I saw in England. Lovely, vibrant, fragile.|
To capture the mood of my upcoming series, The Jane Eyre Chronicles, I tried to dress in a manner reminiscent of all things "Jane," but I didn't want to look "costume-y." Robin had done careful research; the Oatlands was built in the early 19th century, the same period in which my new book, Death of a Schoolgirl, is set.
For most of the day, we trooped up and down in the gardens, observing and admiring. Since we're both visual people, our conversation was peppered with "What about this angle?" and "How about including this in the foreground?" Honestly, we had a blast!
I love the photos! In the weeks leading up to the release of Death of a Schoolgirl, I plan to post the pictures one at a time on Pinterest.
Do you have any suggestions for ways I can use these fabulous pictures? Do you think Robin is a genius? I sure do!
