Wrong Dress

As soon as she entered the ballroom she knew she had chosen the wrong dress.

The rhododendron by the washing line is particularly lovely this year and I was admiring it late one afternoon when I suddenly noticed that there was someone at the party of frilly floral frocks who had not chosen the right dress for the occasion. What I particularly liked was how proud she appeared in spite of the ordinary yellow outfit. She was the one who stood out!

  1. I remember going to prom and being so proud of my new dress, only to see so many other girls in the same dress, only with different color sashes. The funniest part was going to Universal Studios in LA a few years ago and finding said dress for sale among costumes that they were selling to the public; again, with a different color sash. Great photo, Ellie, and story to go along with it. Have a great week!

    1. What a great story your comment is, too, Sharon! How funny to see it for sale at Universal like that! Thanks so much, have a great week, yourself!

  2. so glad you are still in the garden Ellie … hey it is fun being the one who stands out in the crowd 🙂 Winter coming here Down Under but only a light jumper required so far , BIG HUG

    1. You are absolutely right, Cynthia! And there would be two of us, you and me. I actually had to wear a yellow lace dress of my stepmother’s to my prom. Yellow is absolutely the worst colour on me, but it was what I had, I only hope I stood as proud as that dandelion in the crowd of frilly, expensive gowns! Thanks for the comment, my friend!
