Sweet Garden of Mine...
Thursday, February 07, 2019
This collection was inspired from my memories as a teenager when my parents decided to keep bees: My Dad built the beehives while my Mum planted flowers that our bee’s would love.
I have used my signature muted tones for the prints and called them names such as lilac, periwinkle, butterfly, weed, clover and oxeye.
No need to put on your gardening gloves to work with these delightful prints. I have created a feature print which encompasses beehives, watering cans, busy bees and dancing dragonflies. A haven for all things flora and fauna, this delightful collection of garden prints that are sure to inspire.
I have created lots of yummy projects using 'Sweet Garden of Mine'
I love fresh cut flowers, they brighten our home and there is nothing nicer than having cut them first from your own garden!
