“Borage and Hellebor fill two scenes,
Sovereign plants to purge the veins
Of melancholy, and cheer the heart,
Of those black fumes which make it smart;
To clear the brain of misty fogs,
Which dull our senses, and Soul clogs.
The best medicine that e’er God made
For this malady, if well assay’d.”
Robert Burton, The Anatomy of Melancholy 1621
Hellaborus- enchanting deeply gothic flowers of late winter to early spring.
This style evokes passions of times past. Soft full purple peaks into muted tones in lifted curls in this defiantly pastel goth piece.
