Voices In Flowers

Writing in the Garden

Flowers speak….teach…sing…heal… Invoking their presence, in our writing, as guides and guardians, for insight, assistance and inspiration: engaging our minds and hearts and pens with their color, scent, sacred geometries, forms, their science and ancient stories…brings us into alignment with the inbreath and outbreath of Beauty in this world… Each week we focus on a single flower, offering sensual, botanical, mythic and poetic notes to bring us into deep, celebratory connection…A pure, intoxicating pleasure for Gardener/Writers!
