However, let's go a step further. How can we use flowers in our books? Here are some examples:
Setting - When describing a character's surroundings, to ground a reader, include a flower typically grown in one portion of the country. For example, in the Spring, you might see outdoor cactus flowers in Scottsdale, but not in Chicago.
Season - Poinsettias are a prime example for Christmastime, while crocus, daffodils,and tulips bring Spring to mind, in such places as the Midwest portion of the United States.
Sloppy or Not? - This time of year also brings to mind dandelions, which some consider a weed, others, a flower, or even a home remedy.
Sinister or Not? - Who'd guess that many popular outdoor flowers that look so pretty, such as azaleas , irises, and hydrangeas, can be poisonous to pets, and even to humans in certain quantities?
By now, you get the idea. I invite you to share an example as well, or comment on one mentioned.
