When the team decided on 'Freaky Flowers' as theme for our swap, I immediately thought of Audrey II. Audrey II is the singing and uhm...rather hungry flesh eating plant from the 1986 movie Little Shop of Horrors.

The Talking Flowers in Alice in Wonderland are definitely freaky and there's lots of room for interpretation on how to depict them.
More gentle, kid (and grown-up) friendly plant varieties can be found in Dr. Seuss' Lorax. Both the book and the movie feature a super fluffy tree called the Truffula. You can see some in the background of the movie trailer. The flower on the photo below could have been an inspiration for the Lorax' Truffula Trees. It has the same firm-yet-fluffy qualities!
