woolly mammoths

The Woolly Mammoth species was first recorded in (possibly 150,000 years old) deposits of the second last glaciation in Eurasia. What we have here is a fascinating example of how mutations can occur and sprout seemingly out of nowhere. DNA samples prove that this is indeed a successor of the behemoth creatures that once roamed the middle of the high Arctic. Now found in the Northern and Western hemisphere, this shaggy flower is still relatively rare and thus coveted amongst horticulturists.

I've never seen this rare horticultural specimen--and such a beautiful one! This would have been perfect at my wedding...hmmm, or in my garden. I wonder whether they would grow in the Middle European soil...

Love your mutations, Paula!

Fantastic!! They look like "don't mess with me" mums. Are there only a few more before they are extinct? Your flowers are getting cooler and cooler.

Your production is so interesting and original. I read your post about life in Texas with relief. I was thinking that it would be a pity if the grind of life ground you down to the point where you could no longer create. You seemed to be in such misery. But, thankfully, you have overcome. I look forward to seeing the work from the "new" you.
best, nadia
