Our local nursery was having their annual Spring flower display, an early teaser, and it was raining, so I stopped there to get high. On flowers. I get pretty buzzed on flowers – it’s true. Obviously I am not the only one, as a number of people were tilting over, staring with blissed out looks on their faces, sniffing and staggering around…. clearly intoxicated. In the background the sound of the waterfalls provided a kind of music.
I was focusing on the colors and could practically feel my pupils dilating as my brain took in the textures and juxtaposition.
The Renunculus looks like a monk’s saffron robe. Even the name is trippy….Renunculus!
A crowd of tiny Jump-Up’s waving. All those little faces looking up at you! Are they scowling or are they happy? …Eeeeeeeeee!
Daffodils were trumpeting their golden trumpets!
And my favorite activity – huffing lilacs. I could practically pass out from the scent of lilacs, couldn’t you? Everybody was doing it.
I even saw some green fairies in the hellebore…..
When I finally pulled myself away and lurched out of there, I walked over to the koi pond and communed with the fish. They gave me fish kisses. Fish Love.
High on flowers! A little taste to launch you into the garden season.
