Instead of buying fresh cut flowers I decided to put some little pansies in small mason jars to have around the house. I've given all but the tall one away. It looks perfect sitting on the kitchen windowsill. I haven't been posting much on flickr over the last few months. I've been busy working on a couple of things, one of which is my soon to be etsy store which I've decided to name flossy. Beware all of you, my flickr username is about to change once again to be the same, flossy. I like the idea of going under all one name. I know I change my flickr name often but this will be the last time, I swear. Anyway, I'm excited about the shop and I'll be back into the flickr posting swing soon. More on other projects later. In the meantime, I'm off to sew...

i treat myself to fresh cut flowers as often as i can. i buy them at costco most of the time, but i also get them once a month, when i remember, from a flower stand near my doctor's office in Pacific Heights.

We buy more flowers a year than we do Big Macs, spending $6.2 billion annually. We use them to mark our most important events, to express sentiments that might otherwise go unsaid. And we demand perfection. So it’s no surprise that there is a $40 billion global industry devoted to making flowers flawless.
Amy Stewart takes us inside the flower trade—from the hybridizers, who create new varieties in the laboratory, to the growers, who produce flowers by the millions (often in a factory-like setting), to the Dutch auctioneers, who set the bar (and the price), and ultimately to the neighborhood florists orchestrating the mind-boggling demands of Valentine’s and Mother’s Day. There’s the breeder intent on developing the first blue rose; an eccentric horticultural legend who created the world’s most popular lily; a grower of gerberas of every color imaginable; and the equivalent of a Tiffany diamond: the “ Forever Young” rose.
Stewart explores the relevance of flowers in our lives and in our history, and in the process she reveals all that has been gained—and lost—by tinkering with nature.
