I chose the rose header above because it reminded me of illustrations from actual field guides, and because it was so clear (I have received email with the salutation “Dear F”). She pulled the rose from one of my London flower photos—Kate was probably right there when I took the picture, memories 4ever! I usually enjoy doing my own work, but I also enjoy working with someone I know and trust and making use of their talents on a professional level. So, thanks, Kate, and thanks to Geoff for doing all the coding.
I also wanted to send my love to my sweet friend Caitlin. We love you, Cake. Here are some virtual flowers for you, although I wish I could come over and bring you an armful of the ballet slipper pink carnations that you love.
Clockwise from top left: showy roses from my favourite field guide, The Field Guide to Wildflowers, taken from my Instagram account (user name: fieldguided, although frankly I am not too proud of my Instagram account. I cannot get into the habit); flower arrangements from Jil Sander F2012; Sophie Tajan; Hannah surrounded by petals and pink.
