“The greatest blunders, like the thickest ropes, are often compounded of a multitude of strands. Take the rope apart, separate it into the small threads that compose it, and you can break them one by one. You think, “That is all there was!” But twist”    Victor Hugo

        • No, I was wondering what Lucille was going to do with her colour palette!

  4. The comment box is not an ideal vehicle for a conversation is it? I thought those were colours that I could wear in Spring.

    • You’re right. Chatting through comments is not life in the fast lane
      And thank you for re-focussing my attention on colour palette choices for the next monsoon…
