I love the contrast between the flower and the gun

SImple, the author wanted this feel and it has various elements from the book. San Francisco 1848, mystery of sorts, dedicated problem solving heroine, and the plant is death camus..poisonous. Take your pick, get shot and die or die a horrible death from a pretty plant. By the way my braincells are rented out at the moment and I forgot the who I rented them to...Stupidity versus brainlessness?

I've been trying hard to understand this one. Is she trying to draw a pistol or a pistol?
Amazing lace work. How many brain cells did you have to sacrifice to accomplish this work? Lovly work. Me like. Patter

P.S. Botany versus weaponary?

The detail in the lace and the texture you have given it are amazing. Great!

Art at its best.
