#FridayFantasy . . . She was picking flowers




“She was picking flowers: roses, crocus, and beautiful violets.
Up and down the soft meadow. Iris blossoms too she picked,
and hyacinth. And the narcissus, which was grown as a lure
for the flower-faced girl by Gaia the Earth…”

From “Homeric Hymn to Demeter,” 650-550 BCE.
