Welcome to Blooms of Wonder!

This site was created around my Blooms of Wonder books, and has expanded into other writing and photography projects including developing creative consulting opportunities.  Feel free to e-mail me at or call me at 317-514-1462 with any questions or to order books, notecards, prints, etc.  And, please let me know if you know somewhere I could share my work.  I also invite you to check out my wellness coaching at

Read on to learn a bit more about the book Blooms of Wonder, the notecards, or prints.   I’ve received feedback (see comments for some) of being awed and soothed by the flowers and poetry.  I’m excited to have Blooms of Wonder be a part of my love-focused wellness work!  My book features photographs of flowers from the yard where I grew up and poems that were inspired by the flowers.

Blooms of Wonder books

A few of these can still be purchased directly from me (mailing options available) for $13 + $3 for shipping.  For those who are in Indianapolis, other options than shipping might be available.  (Call 317-514-1462 or e-mail

However, soon, likely in June, a new printing with a few personal updates (e.g. change in name) will be available, as there are limited copies of the older version available.  These will also be available at a reduced price because the reprint is less expensive ($10 + $3-$5 shipping depending on the number of books you order.  Once these are available, there will be a paypal purchase option here as well.

The book is about 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 in size, in paperback, and is 40 pages in length and the price is $12.95.  The front cover image is the Crocosmia pictured below and Sample page has one of the poems.

Notecards are available, sold individually and in three different sets of six specific images from the book, as well as one set of winter images, some of which are in the book.  You can also purchase directly from me and I will mail them.  Each set of six images is $10 for the set which includes tax.

The old sets (limited number still available) only have 5 images and are available in limited quantity for $8.50 each.

And, shipping is similar to the books, between $3-$5 for up to 3 sets.

Simply contact me directly for more info about this.  I can send you pictures of them.  Pictures will return to the website soon as well as paypal pay links.  Thanks!

Matted prints are available for order of the images in the book as well as some other images.   Prices vary depending on the print and the details of purchase including the size of the matting.  Purchases in sizes from 4×6 or 5×7 (unmatted) can be mailed to you and any purchase of 4 or less at this smaller size is guaranteed or your money refunded.  The larger matted prints depend upon specifics.

Thanks! and with love,
Kathryn Ellen

    Use this book for reading purposes only. I tried to change my oil with this book and then my car exploded. Also, it does not act as a portal to communicate with the future.

    I felt good reading your book the first time and have used it as a pick-me-up or calm-me-down type tool since then. Both the pictures and words cause my inner chatter to become still and embrace nature through the lens of your camera and mind. Thank you for creating this for all of us!
