Yule flowers

Yule flowers

December 21 marks one of the turning-points of the year. The days seem more or less equal; the closer you are to the equator, the more true that is. For the northern hemisphere, we have our shortest night and we get a smidgen more light every night until the third week in June. In the southern hemisphere, it’s the exact opposite: the days get shorter and the nights longer.

Flowers for ballet

Flowers for ballet

We’ve been fascinated to discover, recently, that when flowers appear at the end of a ballet, they’re subject to some very special, die-hard rules. For example, at London’s Royal Ballet, men don’t typically get flower bouquets unless they’re dressed up as female characters. There was a bit of a flutter recently when, after getting special dispensation from the director, men did, in fact, receive flowers on-stage.
