The alternate world of flowers is sacred for me, so much so that my greenhouse apartment has several flowering plants and one tangerine plant which quite literally is growing forever. I am also trying to overhaul these gloomy days with photographs I took from Canada Blooms. Get prints and put them on the walls. I am told flower power is an effective way to trigger sensory experiences. And with my blocked nose, I see no reason why I should not take full advantage of what my camera has captured.
And to get an abundance of long stemmed TULIPS in radiant-reds, titanium-whites, fiery-oranges, mellow-yellows and plum-purples…I did not have to travel far, thanks to the gratitude of the Dutch to Canada in return for sheltering one of their Princesses’ during the Second World War.
