A charming story about a rose and her friends from the garden celebrating summertime and Rosie's birthday. Deals with friendships, new and old.
It all started with a dancing green bean girl. In 2011, I began photographing vegetable people made from produce grown in my garden. This year I've branched out into photographing flowers.
I photographed most everything in this book on my kitchen table using natural light streaming in from a large kitchen window.
As I created these characters, the story seemed to write itself. I hope you enjoy the book as much as I enjoyed telling the story of Rosie and her friends.

Review of Playing With Vegetables Series : 2011
"Marianne is playing with her food; she's allowed, she grew it, and a wonderful happy celebration of summer it is to have these wonderful vegetable people running and jumping in front of your eyes. Marianne is an artist who works with yarn and textiles, her purses are a joy as is her blog, WilleWorks."
