The text and paintings on The Trowbridge Chronicles are taken from the illustrated journal of Violet Trowbridge, a shrew that once lived in a village deep in the Olympic Rain Forest. Each new post will represent a portion of Mrs. Trowbridge’s journal.

GLOSSY FRANGIPANI

Mrs. Trowbridge was fascinated by the tales and legends of her shrew ancestors in the South Pacific. Though she painted other subjects from South Seas lore, the exotic tropical flowers, like this Frangipani (Plumera obtusa) were her favorites.
