When Meryl Streep sarcastically spits in the Devil Wears Prada: "Flowers for spring time? How very original..." I always think: suck it up Meryl/Anna, you're fighting a loosing battle. I happen to think flowers in spring are really very nice and help distract me from all the work I should be doing. I guess that being Meryl/Anna, you probably have fast cars/ lots of Bollinger/ very nice Chanel clothes, and cocaine, to distract you from life's banalities: I have perennials.
And herein is a celebration of the things blooming, growing or looking generally fecund that are inspiring me right now.
