“The tenacity of the flowers that pop up in the urban environment is to be celebrated. I love the flowers that come up amongst the litter and the debris of life around a station or a bus stop. Suddenly something jewel like catches your eye and you are cheered. I am also inspired by the wildflower garden where I work. It is full of flowers in the spring and summer, when the garden is alive with bees, both from the hive and the bee hotel.

Each flower has a use and I have been researching their stories; the myths and legends, their healing properties and their culinary delights.

I hope you can see the familiar and mundane in a new light and understand that we do not exist in isolation, but as part of a whole. Without plants we wouldn’t survive.


Enjoy the stories.”
