The group is very active, with a LOT of dialogue between members on subject as far-ranging as fixatives, sourcing, tincturing plants from their garden, etc. We've had a surge in posts in the past month or two, and I was watching as we approached the 1000th post for the month of August - and it was Linda's intro.
This week a sample of rare florals will be in the mail to her in Iowa for her good fortune in posting #1000. She'll receive rose, jasmine, osmanthus, boronia and pandanus.
Congratulations, Linda, and best wishes in your path in natural perfumery.
The image for this post is the one that has been on the front page of the group since Day One. I once held a poll on the group a few years ago to see if the members wanted it changed, and they voted no. It's so evocative - we'd choose flowers over gold and pearls. Yes, we would ;-)
