I'm ashamed to say I have never read the book - I will endeavour to correct this. I'm also going to see if I can get hold of the DVD of the adaptation. Thanks for the introduction.

I am in my mid thirties, but always believed I was born far older. I reckon I'm currently about 56 in my mind and already excited about being an eccentric old bird at 80.


Hi Dawn! I love the idea of getting older because then I can do what I want and just be considered a crazy old lady and not have to worry about what I wear or say.

Do you have your own blog or are you just on Landscape Juice?

Excellent! Off to Netflix. Thank you for the head's up.

Love this post and LOVE your adding it to my blogroll. I can't WAIT to read "All Passion Spent." I loved "The Edwardians" so much...Vita's evocations of that incredible house are embedded in my brain. I used to take 10 mile country walks that would wind up at Knole and then we'd walk to the nearby train station in Sevenoaks... that house RULES!!

Did you see the BBC series "Sissinghurst"? (Vita's home after Knole, which I'm sure you know all about.) I watched all seven episodes on my computer when I was in London. It was amazing.


Lisa — I did not realize there was a "Sissinghurst" series. I will have to search that one out as my husband and I are big Harold and Vita fans, to say nothing of garden fanatics. Thanks for the nice compliments about my blog as yours is one of my favorites!


What a romantic thing to contemplate!


I think Vita may be a good example of the benefits of not getting what you want. Maybe she would have done something wonderful at Knole, but I think it was the loss that motivated her.
