There may be a distinct and strong tradition of flower fables, into which this recent entry would fit. The stories are not fables. They are good stories. Like the paintings, they are generally strong on the sensuous and the sentimental. Several are clearly not for kids. The acrylic paintings seem to me predictable and not overwhelming. The stories include the etymological, as when pansies are formed from pensées (16).
