Julie Ardery shows us some flower lover love over on the Human Flower Project blog.  It’s a pretty great place to poke around if you find anything plant related interesting like me.  In 10 minutes I read about a 17th century mystical hunger artists who lived only on the ‘scent of flowers’, how to brew hibiscus tea and the prevalence of flowers as a sign of ‘evil’ in the movies of John Sayles.  I’m hooked.

“If frowzy little houseplants cry
For French Surrealists,
Why, oh, why can’t I?…”

I’m not sure if she made this little ditty up on the spot, but if she did, I want to hire her to write the sequel.
