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. I've made it my job to turn flowers into gold.  It is a transmutation of sorts and is what I refer to as Fool's Alchemy, an extant subdivision of Mysticism. It is my way to breathe eternity into her ephemeral beauty.
