    Apparently the photos for this book were taken with a flatbed scanner, which is pretty amazing considering they look like this.

    Yeah, ain't that just sumthin'? I appreciate their bringing something new to flower photo publishing. It must have been both fun and a huge pain in the ass to keep the scanner glass free of pollen and droplets, etc., while arranging and suspending and whatnot. Druse said that's how Hoverkamp did that. I'm impressed, too, that Druse actually did an enfleurage with fat and rose petals.
    I don't want to. I don't have to. You can't make me. I'M RETIRED.

    Rose Delight Body Oil by Tauer (I used the last of my bottle tonight)



    I went to the pool for lots of sun - it was so hot, I sweat a lot. It's been a good while since I've done that. Fall!? Snow!? Not here!!!
