The timeless appeal of Shakespearean literature draws upon nature's imagery that eloquently brings to life concepts such as beauty, love, and faithfulness. Plants create many different moods, linking scents to memories, colors to emotions, and various textures to any number of sensations. I think of this often when I write. Shakespeare has always inspired me. So with my botanical background I searched out these flowers and plants that could be the flowers of his writings. I plan --- over the next three years to develop a Shakespeare inspired flower bed.. I reasearched some what I have found are here and their images to see.
The color and texture really shows .. I so wish we could all smell their scents!!!
