A faery-facial-study I just finished with lots of wonderful flowers. She looks a little bit like my little sister, the same mischievous glint in the eyes :) Well, now to the flowers :) perhaps you've already noticed that I'm kind of obsessed with the beautiful Latin terms flowers have, so here are their botanical expressions ( you don't have to read this, I just thought someone could be interested :) I'll start with the flowers in her hair, from the upper right corner down: Arnica montana, Campanula patula (bellflower), Linum perenne and Campanula rapunculus (another kind of bellflower) The flowers that form the border are, starting in the middle under her chin and going clock-wise, Centaurea cyanus (cornflower), Dianthus sylvestris (carnation or pink (now that's a cute word for a flower :), Campanula rotundifolia (bellflower again and again another sort), Geranium pratense, Chrysanthemum Leucanthemum (marguerite - well, I know it doesn't really look like a marguerite, I'm sorry), Ranunculus lingua (crowfoot), Primula marginata (primrose), Myosotis palustris (marsh forget-me-not) and bellflower and carnation again. These are all flowers that I really like, simple yet beautiful ones you'll find while wandering through the enchanting forests and plains that at some places still exist in Germany :)
