The lady is caught in the wind which is blowing leaves/butterflies into her room. She is trying to move away from the rush but her legs are not working well for her. The vase is ephemeral, the flowers are not opening – she is surprised at her featured placement. There are further comments on my blog page – written before she was complete.
