Thank you to the people who answered my question about sprigged muslim. It is much appreciated.
In yet another anecdote from Jane's letters she mentions ladies decorating their hats/bonnets with fruit eg strawberries as oppossed to flowers.
She mentions amusingly that she has seen nuts and larger fruit at the greengrocer's but not on hats ....yet.
Question: is she serious? How long did this trend last? How did ladies stop birds from pecking at the fruit?
