Please don't ever stop creating these. And please don't ever get rid of your tortoise (?).

I just love that second picture of Fonteyn and Nureyev beside the lake. It evokes such lovely memories of Covent Garden. I don't think I've ever seen Margot's shell look quite so glamorous, a Peter Darrell production I assume?

Margaret, LOL! Yes, Rudolph and Margot were quite a stunning couple in their day. You can see the passion in their eyes. But I think Margot was a wee bit bloated in this production...
