It is under a snowstorm that I write you this newsletter. The first thing I thought when I saw that it was snowing was, “My Hellebores!” What a difference a week makes!

In the atelier, I’m starting work on another plant grimoire page. I’ve challenged myself with another light flower, but it’s been so fun to get immersed in all the details and to figure out efficient ways to communicate white petals. I’m not telling you which plant it is, but here are some hints:
I hope they’ll be alright! They’re called Christmas Roses after all. In other news, I’ve completed another grimoire page! I don’t know if you guessed it, but I was painting beautiful Vanilla! It was so interesting to learn about the folklore surrounding this orchid. Isn’t it incredible that we are eating the fruit of an orchid? It was a difficult plant to paint because, like the tea flower, it is very pale. Still, it was so much fun researching it, and I had lovely moments painting it. If you want to see more, feel free to visit my portfolio.

Spring is officially here! The lake has melted, and flowers are starting to come out. The quickest of them all in our garden are the hellebores! I have to admit, I bought these plants last Fall at the very end of the season based solely one their names. Hellebore. Sounds like the kind of flower that would have been used by medieval witches or fairies! Luckily, they settled down well in our garden, and what pleasure it is to discover their wonderfully beautiful flowers!

In the atelier, I’m starting work on another plant grimoire page. I’ve challenged myself with another light flower, but it’s been so fun to get immersed in all the details and to figure out efficient ways to communicate white petals. I’m not telling you which plant it is, but here are some hints:

– The plant was born from the blood of star-crossed lovers, according to legend;
– The flower only blooms for one day;
– You probably have some in your kitchen!

Can you guess?
