Cultivating Place: The Magical Botanicals of Flora Forager, with Bridget Beth Collins

All photos courtesy of Flora Forager, all rights reserved.

IN the spirit of May, this week we’re headed out in the garden, or down the block, or up the trail for some planty wonder and magic in the company of Bridget Beth Collins – the creative force, glittering vision, and imagination behind the botanical art of Flora Forager.

Bridget is a gardener, a mother, and an artist who often brings all three of her life roles together in her work. She founded the Instagram feed and custom artistry known as Flora Forager in the 2000-teens and has since been the author of three books – The Art of Flora Forager, the Flora Forager ABCs, and most recently the Flower Fairy Journals.


Bridget joins us this week from her home and garden in Seattle, Washington to share more about the importance of looking at the world through glittering (flowery) eyes. Listen in!
