April showers? No. May flowers for The City Flea

Whew. Been scanning every image from a 1910 classic: "The Flower Children" by Elizabeth Gordon. It was published by the P.F. Volland Co. of Chicago and went into a gazillion printings. In the late 1940s, the Wise-Parlow Co. of N.Y. reprinted it. I have copies from each publisher, and am saving one set for future Sweet Petite collages, and selling the other The City Flea (10a-4p, May 17 in Cincinnati's Washington Park). They're packaged on colorful uncut mat boards that can be cut to mat the prints. This way, buyers can select which flower to show (each has another on its back), and whether to include the poem.
