McPherson's poems embody the tender bloom and joyous colors of the flowers she recounts. Her odes to spring are matched with the vibrant illustrations of artist and printer Claire Van Vliet whose smooth strokes, bold red, and gentle lavender capture the same essence McPherson traces; colors dance over rolling hills, as the blossom sings a simpler song of being. Van Vliet cut unique pictorial cloth covers for 150 copies of a limited edition hardcover, signed by both author and artist.
