COLLEEN’S 2020 #BOOK #REVIEWS – “Drops of Flowery Calm,” BY AUTHOR, Jane Sturgeon, @JaneSturgeon3

Featuring Your Next Weekend Read!

About this Book

Drops of Flowery Calm is an eBook collection of stories, flowers & colours, and their meanings and poems.


I stumbled across this book several months ago when we were in the throes of the Corona Virus Pandemic. I’d searched for something uplifting to read, as our days seemed dark in this new reality.

What I found was a delightful collection of memoirs, featuring the kind of prose and poetry that helps you forget your woes. In fact, Jane’s introduction talks of how we all search for a place of calm, especially when we get buried under layers of living. Her remedy is to immerse ourselves in the colors of calm: blues, pinks, and deep purples.

Divided by these three color sections, the book reveals the meanings behind each color. Be prepared for stunning descriptions of past gardens, homes, and reprints of memorable poetry greats, like Emily Dickinson. Interspersed throughout, are Jane’s memories of the flowers, the colors, and past events that link it all together.

The flower photo images are provided by Clare Florist, who from 1978 to present is considered one of the UK’s most acclaimed and respected online florists.

This was a short read I completed in one evening. It took my mind off some tedious situations and for a brief time, I was immersed in the colors of calm.

About the Author

My name is Jane, and I was born in England and have heard and seen spirit since I was little. My teenage years were spent in Africa and that taught me lessons on how we are all connected and about the importance of c0mmunity. I have worked as a systems analyst, technical writer, farm sitter, furniture restorer and therapist and I also spent a bit of time in The States in my mid-twenties. I now live on The Wirral in England, by the Irish Sea, and spend my days writing, making art and helping others to create the lives they choose.

My Passion

I believe that we all hold the keys to life within ourselves, and I have been sharing how to find and use those inner gifts for over ten years.

By linking in with our spirit guides, you can see different perspectives and ways on how to bring about the changes you seek in yourself and your own life.

Our modern society bombards us with images and impressions that things happen instantly, and this is a constant source of stress for many. However, as all gardeners know, seeds need to be planted in fertile soil and nurtured with patience, love and care. Courage is sometimes needed to re-arrange your life plants, even removing some completely. Life is about learning which plants work well for you and experimenting on the creation of a life garden that nourishes you.  There is no right or wrong, as you are an individual and have needs that are yours and yours alone. 

My hope is to help you discover your inner gifts and the plants that nurture you in your life garden.

My work

There are many blessings in working with spirit, writing and creating.  On my blog, I craft stories and share my thoughts, life perspectives, creativity and interviews and reviews with fellow authors.

Through my readings, I channel from spirit and flow with loving care for those who ask for guidance.

My digital art feeds my creative side and I share photographs, words and images from many life adventures.

In conclusion, it is all about the joy of exploring, discovering, learning new things and working with love to support others to live a life they choose.

      1. Hello Colleen and Sally, I sell my books from my web site and my longer books are on Amazon. It’s a mixture and yes, I went self-hosted with WP a few months ago, because I was not prepared to pay WP for a business account. I found the WIX coding hard to wrap my head around, so WP self-hosted made sense. I have an eCommerce shop on my web site for my digital art, so it felt natural to put my Ebooklets up on there. Time will tell how this flows…. ❤

      2. Ohh, I put an ‘s’ on book didn’t I? Blame the heat, Sally. I have one full one on Amazon, with plans for others. I need to remember the art of crafting space to write properly again. 😉 Your support is much appreciated. ❤ Xx

  4. Hi Dear Colleen, just wonderful on my return to WP this week I see Jane’s review here on your post my friend.. And it sounds as if Jane’s book was just the thing in taking your mind off of the world at the moment… Jane’s energy is both calming and uplifting and I have no doubt at all the words in her books also convey such energy…
    Much love to you both my friend..
    Sue ❤
