Lenten roses; originally native to Greece and Turkey.

Yet a welcome sight in tandem throughout the United States,

from the midwest to the south, lasting six months in most regions. 

 

Imagine a full bouquet atop a priceless treasure such as this 1922 vase by Edith Brown, now held in a private collection. Edith aptly captured the pure essence of reflective pastoral scenery in glorious greens.

 

 

Edith Brown was part of the Paul Revere Pottery,

the first women-owned and run art pottery in America.

The Saturday Evening Girls Club introduced immigrant girls to literature, drama, and dance. Many became full time potters at Paul Revere in Boston, MA. Pottery rooms were filled with sunlight, fresh flowers, and music throughout 8 hour workdays (with paid vacations)!
