PHOTOGRAPHIES ANCIENNES ET MODERNES
Bouquet de fleurs, sans date,
photogramme argentique monté sur carton,
Polixenes. Then make your garden rich in gillyvors,

Perdita. I’ll not put
The dibble in earth to set one slip of them;
No more than were I painted I would wish
This youth should say ‘twere well and only therefore
Desire to breed by me. Here’s flowers for you;
Hot lavender, mints, savoury, marjoram;
The marigold, that goes to bed wi’ the sun
And with him rises weeping: these are flowers
Of middle summer, and I think they are given
To men of middle age. You’re very welcome.
Camillo. I should leave grazing, were I of your flock,
And only live by gazing.
William Shakespeare, The Winter’s Tale (IV,4 - The Shepherd’s cottage), 1623.
