  1. When I write in fantasy worlds I like to take from reality. that is to say, I look up the specific climate of a similar place and borrow the flora from there.

    1. Another cool way to write. There’s some intriguing flora in our real world.

    I loved the part about dead flowers in the house. Haven’t thought of it before but a detail like that can speak volumes! Thank you for sharing! I’m off to complete my post on E now 🙂

    Everpurple 🙂 I love it. Come to think of it, I’m talking about Ewya today on my blog and some of Pandora’s flora is everpurple. Great point you have there, especially about the dead plants.

    I think this is the first post I’m getting e-mailed from you! Might be because of my subscription. lol It definitely makes me think of the weirwood trees in A Song of Ice & Fire. The imagery of them is such a character of them themselves.

    1. It’s entirely possible. Oh yes, those trees are a great example!

    Hi J … I can see certain plants could easily provide clues, or in our imagination could grow so fast they’d overtake our setting – yet be a necessary part of it .. ever-purple trees sound like one of Hockney’s recent ipad painting artworks he made …

    My imagination wandereth .. to zombie flora .. cheers Hilary

    1. Zombie plants! LOL.
      Considering that there are plants that seem to “die” in the winter and “return to life” in the spring, is that really a stretch of the imagination? Spooky!

  2. Small details are the best for making that setting spring to life for the reading and create the atmosphere or give more insight into the characters.

    As to eggs. I guess my fav is omelette with tons of veggies.

    1. Yes indeed.
      Oh, someone answered my question of the day! Yay. Omelettes are great. My friend’s mom makes one with veggies, feta cheese, and some kind of sauce. (Not sure what.) Really tasty.

    1. Absolutely! Happy check-listing. 🙂

  3. Evergreen works well in my novel where some of the scary scenes are set in swamps. Loved your book and will review it as soon as I can.

    1. Thank you so much! I appreciate your comment, and any review you are kind enough to post.
      Swamps- awesome!

  4. A very useful prompt, and one that I utilize in my Redcliffe novels. Nature is central to our way of life, whether we acknowledge it every day or not, and there is much to be said for the sandy beach of Redcliffe Bay, and the dense forest up on the cliff, where werewolves and vampires run amok…
