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.
