With your purchase you’ll receive eight cards in a clear box, one of each design (scroll through to see them all) . . . a perfect gift for yourself or loved ones who enjoy the art of correspondence. Continue reading “Botanical Portraits”

River Runs Through It: Angel Series

This full moon was a Buttercup Moon here in the forest; the green a vibrant backdrop beneath prolific buttercups, nodding their shining heads, waxing poetic in glowing terms, and ceaselessly smiling at everything.  I read somewhere that ‘one sign of spiritual enlightenment is smiling at everything for no apparent reason’; following this mode of thought I’m certain that buttercups are well on their way to enlightenment.

Cosmic Star Spirit

Cosmic starfllowers, basking in morning’s glory,
milk mother burgeoning with sweetness and beauty.
Cosmos, daylily, morning glory, milkweed,
strawflowers, oregano, spirea, and lady’s thumb come
together to give her life.

Twin Souls

Twins, twinning, twining.
Sun and Moon in Gemini.
Brother Sister Stories.
Yin and Yang.
Tanya and Vanya.
Hansel and Gransel.
When two come together intertwined, soular union.
They bounce off one another, interplay with geranium, fleabane,
daylily, spirea, tansy, lovage, and motherwort.

Summer Spirits

Summer forest spirits playing,
listening to what the heat is saying,
shelter in the shade.

Shaped with daylilies, fleabane, milkweed,
motherwort, lovage, tansy, and geranium.

Rose Red

Rosie Bright Eyes,
Snow White’s sister,
they dare to love a bear and brush his hair,
discovering he’s a mister!

Rose Red’s open heart unfolds
in part with roses, motherwort,
wisteria, spirea,
fleabane, and lemon balm.

Snow White

Snow White, sister of Rose Red.
They share their hearts and their beds.
Sisterhood is this sweet,
together they walk the woods on nimble feet,
exploring the land hand in hand.

Comfrey, fleabane, wisteria,
artemesia, and spirea give her life.


Sometimes simply sitting with a friend,
sharing a bench together,
warming a seat,
is enough. In joy.

These two have come forth from spirea and rhododendron leaves,
tulip poplar leaves, viburnum flowers, geranium, fiddleheads, and buttercups.


These two soak in the sunshine
under an arch of goldenrod
in a picture
shaped with zinnias, tansy, jewelweed,
Queen Anne’s Lace, and grasses.
