“...murder mystery at its best...very witty and sharp...well-written novel...was laugh out loud in places, clearly thoroughly researched and the characters are wonderful – you can picture them in your mind’s eye...hope there is more where this came from, as it was a thoroughly enjoyable read.”

Thought I’d share a new mixed-media, vertical garden art project I created for a sick friend. I call it ‘Bootiful Flowers’.

Contains succulent flowers crafted from hand-dyed pistachio shells, and home-grown poppy pods, Chinese Walking Stick bamboo canes and purple KoolAid-dyed Japanese Timber bamboo canes.

Hope you like it!
