I was looking for inspiration for my new batch of Sari Silk yarn and came across this fascinating blog. I'd found my way to a blog from Beautiful Silks.com and they were talking about India Flint, an amazing worker in natural dyes and mark making and whilst reader her bog I saw this link to the human flower project; an international newsgroup,photo album and discussion of the human relationship beween us and flowers. I especially love the article on oranges.
