Three more beauties in flower today. Sirius, the brightest star – certainly the biggest star in the theatre today. Harmony is a lovely light centred alpine, and the dusting of farina on the green and lemon of Helen Ruanne make it a strange but beautiful bloom.

Flower of kings and of weavers
Crushed underfoot on the mountainsides of Gaul
Leaves of green for a queen and a thousand different colours
Comfort of the soldier on the wall
Your flower theatre will remind me
Of the gardener and the skillful artisan
Of Reformation time, and the people
On a journey to find a new homeland
The flower of kings will live forever
The flower of weavers will go on
Spell or cure on a starry night
The moon in the middle of the flower shines bright
