A reticule is a net bag. It always seemed rather
impractical to make evening bags out of net so
I've always wondered if they were lined and the
net purely decorative.

I refused to read it for years when I was little

girly edition that had a stupid blurb. But I got 
sick of seeing it whenever
I went to the library, and read it and loved it!
I also found a nicer edition second hand later.>

I loved this book too. Were the geraniums red or
pink? It was a kid's TV series a while ago. They
filmed it in the Czech republic or maybe Poland
irrc so they had spectacularly beautiful
landscapes. I can't remeber anything about the
actors but I know that I enjoyed it.
