cecil beaton.

'Dear Cecil arrived wearing armour/Some shells and a black feather boa.' At other parties he appeared in a pink satin tailcoat, or with his hair dusted with gold powder....
.

.
Every Friday, preparations were made for his guests: the lawn-mowers would hum; hampers of lobster, peach-fed hams and fruits drowned in liquers were collected from the train station...
.
.
Beaton himself would arrive with a carful of flowers bought that morning at Covent Garden and spend hours arranging them; the latest books and magazines would be scattered artlessly about. .

..
That evening, motor-cars with hot, smoking brakes would appear on the drive, lade down (at their host's request) with fancy dress, and Beaton, resplendent in a Tyrolean suit, would welcome his friends to wonderland.
.


Days at Ashcombe were filled with fun: picnics, egg-and-spoon races, backgammon, bathing at the waterlily-filled pool at nearby Fonthill or dancing to jazz records imported from New York. Eccentricity and frivolity were the order of the day.....
