“Those be rubies, faerie favours…”

My talented friend Francoise Weeks came by yesterday to pick small figs from my tree for some of her arrangements this weekend. She always brings me flowers when she shows up… it is such a gracious and old world thing to do and it always makes my day. Her elegant mixes of texture and color are so beyond anything I could ever muster, no matter how much I study them… she just has the touch.

I have worked with Francoise for years. It has been wonderful to watch her style evolve as she gently leads her clients into new worlds. I have decided that she has discovered a sort of faerie place… something you might find in good children’s books. You might imagine yourself very small and wandering through the quiet woods on the coast… encountering these very amazing plants. You’d have to be small enough to step under leaves or peer up into the flowers… 

You can bet that I will be looking closer the next time I take a walk in the woods.
