Renegade Daisies

Life lessons from the garden

Every spring, I sprinkle seeds within the outlines of my rock borders. And every summer the daisies ignore my attempts to tell them where to grow, and instead, sprout exactly where they have chosen to appear. They have done this magical migrating act for more years than I can remember.




Chance Encounters is a collection of visual stories and expressions, exploring elements of coincidence and the unknown.
