One of my favorite flowers, Ophelia is not to be forgotten. Love and poetry she deserved, and yet fate cursed her with grief and death. Though I’m rarely drawn to purples and blues, I somehow connected with her story of beauty and innocence, devotion and tragedy. And so the flood of waters and blooms, amidst the slight of nails.
