Lingua Flora

is the stunning range of cards just launched by my brilliant friend, Lisa Martinovic.

Flowers like you've never seen them, digitally re-imagined from Lisa's original photos. My current favourite is the ginger flower (pictured). Each time I look at it, I can smell the spicy, delicate fragrance - it makes my nostrils quiver.

I sent one to a friend who's about to have a mastectomy.

I sent one to my four-year-old nephew in England. When we play hide-and-seek, and he's the seeker, he loves to call out:

I can't see you, but I can smell you!

I wrote inside:

Look at this flower and guess what it smells like.

He took it to school for show-and-tell.

Buy a Lingua Flora card - or a whole set - today. Send to everyone you know who needs an infusion of beauty.
