Le Pouvoir des Fleurs – The Power of the Flowers!


Hello everyone,

“What would I be without you who came to meet me, what would I be without you a sleeping heart, than this hour stopped on the clock face, what would I be without you than this babble”
February, the month of Cupid…

This ode to Love is not mine… but Aragon’s.
