  1. Hi Polly,

    For world book day next week , I’m dressing up as a Boucher from your story and was wondering if you could write me a short description so that o can wear and look like a Boucher plant ! Thanks you and I’ll send you a picture of the costume x

    1. Hi Rebecca,
      This has made my day! How brilliant! Well, bluchers are silvery blue with thick stalks. At the top of the stalk sits a sort of bulb that is shaped a bit like a teardrop. I would love to see a picture of the costume. Good luck! x
