Who was Cassandra?


  • In the Iliad, she is described as the loveliest of the daughters of Priam (King of Troy), and gifted with prophecy. The god Apollo loved her, but she spurned him. As a punishment, he decreed that no one would ever believe her. So when she told her fellow Trojans that the Greeks were hiding inside the wooden horse...well, you know what happened.

Wow, how interesting! And the site too - have it in my feed now to read more. Thanks, Beth!

I saw a living wall in Avignon, and another blogger saw one recently in Spain. I think the one you show is the most interesting and artistic.
I'm surprised that so many of the plants in your photos are not familiar to me, even though I am from California and live in Hawaii now.
