The Secret Garden: Thea Porter

In the secret garden there is a beautiful girl in a moss colored silk blouse with purple pansies in her hair.

For her garden party, Mother Earth obliges with a perfect evening.  She reads Fireflies in the Garden by Robert Frost.

Here come real stars to fill the upper skies,
And here on earth come emulating flies,
That though they never equal stars in size,
(And they were never really stars at heart)
Achieve at times a very star-like start.
Only, of course, they can't sustain the part.

Dusk settles in the garden and the butterflies that fluttered over her head settle onto her sleeves wanting to stay with the girl forever.  A little Bunny sleeps at her feet.  (really, what is a secret garden without a little downy bunny!)

1970s Thea Porter Silk Wrap Blouse with Butterflies.  Size 4/6.
