Alice In Wonderland, oh and the 80s cartoon Rose Petal Place? The Best. And we can't forget about the magical forest in Legend.
I spent my early childhood in an extremely rural part of Canada (Google Maps has barely even been there yet) and grew up running wild in the forest from sun-up to sun-down. It was Heavenly. As beautiful and lush as it is there in the Spring and Summer, the other 7-8 months of barren cold were torture for me.
I became obsessed with images of the colorful and tropical evergreen scenery of Southern climes. Once I visited the Southern United States and Central America, that was it for me. I knew I had to move. Not just for the flora and fauna but for the heat, the sun and year round beauty. Then as luck would have it, my family had an opportunity to move to the ever lush city of New Orleans. That was many many years ago and here I am now in Houston, still crazed by flowers on the daily.
I've been meaning to create some mandalas of my own and maybe some faces of foliage as well. They both seem like extremely fun and zen like endeavors don't they?
Happy Spring to those of ya'll in the North finally feeling some botanical love after that loooong Winta. Anyone have a similar obsession? I'd love to check out some new Instagram accounts, with a plantie twist.
