Do you have Queen Anne’s lace growing near you? Do you like cut flowers? Do you prefer potted plants? If you were going to give this flower […]

linden blossoms

One of my very favorite smells in the entire world is linden blossoms. I think part of it may be that the blossoming season is very brief – a couple of weeks – and that’s it until next year. The scent is delicate and light, similar to lilies, but sweeter and gentler. Do you have […]

mock orange

Back in the spring I took this photo of a bush in my parents’ yard. I think Mom said it was called a mock orange bush. I love that name. Have you ever seen or smelled real orange blossoms? Where were you? What were you doing? Who were you with? Is there someone in your […]

lily of the valley

Lilies of the valley have been out for a week or two in my area of the world – in fact, the earliest flowers are just starting to die. I was at a friend’s the other day and inhaled great lungfuls of their heady perfume. Glorious. Do you like lilies of the valley? Do lilies […]

One of my favorite signs of spring is the greening of the trees. But if you look closely, the first green is usually not leaves – it’s flowers. Do you have a favorite tree flower? (Some of them, like magnolia blossoms, look beautiful. Others, like linden flowers, smell really nice.) What would a world be […]

primroses

This is a photo of some of my mother’s primroses this spring. For the longest time when I was a kid, I never knew what primroses were. I read the name in a fairy tale, but thought they must just be a variation of regular roses. What would you name these flowers if not primroses? […]

doodles

I collect papers for collaging. Doodles, old lists, ripped envelopes, colour tests… I don’t like to waste a mark. The best part is having something already on the page when I start. How would your life be better if you doodled? Is it easier for you to start with a blank page, or with something […]
