Rakes Progress #12
In issue 12 we look at birdsong, deserted playgrounds and lockdown flowers. We talk to the forensic scientist who solves crimes using her knowledge of pollen and botany. We meet Masami-Charlotte Lavault, who bravely set up Paris’ first flower farm in an old graveyard. We ask Dan Pearson about his 20-year involvement with the Tokachi Millennium Forest, and discover how he fell in love with Japan and the Japanese sensitivity to nature. We travel the world to the Great Wall of China, Florence and as far afield as Papua New Guinea and all of this is mixed in with our usual bunch of still life, fashion, fragrance and flowers. To make up for lost time - this is our biggest issue yet !
