how/why you got into the flowers
a canadian architect turned corporate design slave in new york, moves to austin, abandons grad school, needs to occupy hands. the rest [is somewhat] history.
on your current playlist
a lot of instrumental: yann tiersen, explosions in the sky, michael nyman. of course then there's bruce springsteen, fleetwood mac, neil young, great lake swimmers, bon iver and a little black keys when necessary.
savoury or sweet?
an unrelenting sweet tooth often demands cupcakes at inappropriate times. lemon or chocolate nutella.
best ever flower (for this week at least)
poppy. often difficult to behave, but damn girl, when they do, they do. the peach ones kill me.
prosecco and st germaine (see question #3) or else a pitcher of newcastle. very little in between.
your most unappealing habit
thinking i can do everything myself, knowing otherwise, yet continuing to try.
couldn't live without
the dog, sunshine, close access to tall trees and the outdoors (i'm a forester's daughter)
what makes your heart sing
mountains, the ocean, those perfect melodies in songs, late nights on cottage porches, the dog.
tell me a secret
i used to be a competitive rugby player and can navigate for weeks at a time on canoe in backcountry wilderness. quite appropriately representing the canadian and british commonwealth isn't it? doesn't get me very far down here in texas.
