    One thought on “The Water Flowers”

    1. This is not about flowers, aquatic or otherwise. Maybe "water flowers" is a euphemism with which I am unfamiliar. In any case, the cover is not representative of the contents.It is difficult to describe what the story is "about" if anything, but it seems to accord with my view that reading and painting are excellent while snow and white sauce should be avoided if possible.

    2. Just after the meal concluded Henry suddenly died.It was Christmas Eve as it happened.Jane, Anne, George, and William painted all the ornaments a dull black.-Edward Gorey, The Water Flowers

    3. Second reading: I love how the entire book shifts once she finishes her book. Like the world had vanished for her that little while. Read August 30, 2011
