Fritillary



I just had a spent a lovely fifteen minutes on Twitter and have just 'met' an illustrator called Victoria Archer (@bella_lovebird if your on Twitter) and I skipped over to her blog and discovered her beautiful paintings and illustrations. We agreed we both have an obsession for flowers. Amongst them was this fritillary picture...

and she reminded how much I love these flowers. I tried to do a fritillary design once but the beautiful chequered leaves, which really do sum up their 'fritillaryness' 'proved too tricky to cut by hand. I am now inspired to revisit this flower now I have the super duper laser technology. Thought I'd check out the brilliant BioLib for illustrations and found there to be a particularly lovely one. All inspired again...

Hi there, just discovered your beautiful lighting and have fallen in love with the cowparsley lamp and am getting one for my birthday - yay! Your blog is lovely,but in trying to press the tiny follow icon on my iphone, i may have inadvertently pressed report abuse instead - if that is the case, I am sooo sorry for my hamfistedness, but can assure you, I am delighted to have discovered your work.

I have a tiny boutique flower farm, so anything beautiful in a flowery way piques my interest, and the fritillary paintings you have posted today are so pretty.

PS. Wish I could join 'Do what you love for life' thing. It just looks soooooo good!)
