Honoring the ancestors in flowers
Updated: May 13, 2020
A mothers day bouquet from the garden: Shasta daisy, lantana and chamisa (rabbitbrush - Ericameria nauseosa I think. Stand open to correction here)
I picked this bouquet remembering how, though my father’s first business was growing cut flowers (and dressed guinea fowl ) for the market, he always honoured my mother with bunches of wildflowers picked from the secret places on the farm, not florist’s blooms.
