Ghost Flower




Also called Indian Pipe, this tiny flower makes no chlorophyll, but grows from decaying leaves on the forest floor. This girl came to me dressed as a 17th century New England Puritan, but so far has kept her story a secret. What is her name? Was she hung for witchcraft? Did she accidentally gather poisonous mushrooms? Did she die of a broken heart? Why does she haunt her woods?

If YOU write her story and post it in the comment section here, I will send you a FREE 5x7 print of her! Please include your email or a way I can contact you for your mailing address. No matter how short or long, silly or sad, just make sure her story is spooky! Happy haunting!

I finally was able to get on your blog and see the work you told me about. For some reason, I couldn't get on your blog before. It wouldn't let me. Beautiful work! I think she might be my ancestor!
