Dreams of plants--anything short of a fullsized tree. Still not many--my own dreams don't focus on plants nearly as much as animals. So far, the only dream of a sentient plant is Emily's "Break Free", below; "Speaking Fern" is deceptive. (But what do you expect? Never trust a fern! Oh wait, is that just fernism? Guess that means "Flower Power" is just angiospermic supremacism. Sigh! Another hippie ideal topples into the steaming jungle...)

RELATED TOPICS: trees - flowers - fruits and vegetables - farms - forests - in contrast, a much longer list: animal people - dream creatures in general - See also the full INDEX OF SUBJECTS.
