Georgiana and the Snapdragons — 18 Comments

  1. This is so beautifully written. Georgiana is pure delight as she reads to the Gardiner children, then captures their imaginations with a story she makes up. I really like this portrait. In fact of all the stories I have read about her, this is the most appealing.

    I guess we’ll just have to wait to find out about Elizabeth and Darcy, eh?

    • Don’t worry. There’s an HEA for Darcy and Elizabeth. Georgiana plays an important role in this story in helping to get the couple together. Thanks for taking the time to comment!

  2. I am so glad to see you are writing. I have read Book #1 several times (but I can’t remember its name) and your writing in the group efforts. I am glad to know there is hope of another book.

  3. What a lovely excerpt. I used to love playing with the snapdragons in our garden when I was little (alas too many years ago!)
    I like it when Elizabeth and Georgiana are friends. Hopefully Elizabeth will find the chance to let Darcy know she is sorry for what she said and he will apologise for the manner of his proposal then they will realise that they are madly in love with each other and all will be right with the world 😃.
    I hope this helps you to finish your story, like Lady C I do love to be helpful!

    • There always has to be an HEA! I was planting yellow snapdragons when Elizabeth and Georgiana started talking to me and begged to have me write up this scene.

  4. That was such an adorable story. I especially love Mrs, Gardiner’s comment at the end. Snapdragons are one of my favorite flowers. Thankbyoi for sharing.

  5. That was a lovely interlude. It is not difficult to imagine how their friendship would lead to Darcy and Elizabeth becoming better acquaintances and clearing up some misunderstandings.

    I remember snapdragons in my mother’s garden and pinching the sides to make them “talk”.

    Thanks for sharing. I look forward to learning more about this story.

    • Thanks for reading, Sheila. I used to play with the snapdragons, too, when I was a kid. Looking back, my mom probably didn’t appreciate it! Still, a nice memory.

    • Georgiana is one of the characters in P&P who never actually says anything. Hard to believe as she seems so real.

  6. Lovely excerpt. Loved making snapdragon “talk” when I was a kid having them in our backyard. Don’t know of anyone that has these flowers growing now.

    • I try to have at least one snapdragon in my mixed pots on the patio. Thanks for taking time to comment.
