The window shot is from her bedroom in Unit # 1 of the Tyrone Guthrie Centre in Annaghmakerrig.

The woman in the portrait is Vanessa Bell (of Bloomsbury fame), painted by Duncan Grant. The painting hangs in the British National Portrait Gallery.

The snowdrops were in the backyard of her friend Dodo Stanley. Self visited her in Driffield, East Riding, in early March.
