Spring, summer, and autumn container gardening on a small apartment's balcony is all the more appreciated during the short growing season in the Enchanted Mountains of Western New York State where eclectic artist and writer, S.Theresa Dietz, makes her home. The twenty plus years of ongoing research into the subject of floriography symbolism and powers were driven onward by her fascination with all things magical and mysterious, along with her deep abiding love of all trees, plants, and flowers. She is the author of The Complete Language of Flowers.
