fool's alchemy: to turn flowers into gold

Fool's alchemy: to turn flowers into gold.

The alchemists wanted to transform base metals into gold. My job is to turn flowers into gold.  It is a transmutation of sorts and what I refer to as Fool's Alchemy, an extant subdivision of Mysticism. It is my way to breathe eternity into her ephemeral beauty.

Examples of plants used from which component designs originated.
