I Never Promised you a Rose Garden

I am a lucky bunny - I've had commissions from some of the countries most amazing places and the latest client, was Kew Gardens.

The inspiration was not the stunning flora or majestic trees but a little known remedy garden new Kew Palace. The garden was a wealth of inspiration with old English sayings by each plant. I will say one of my favourites was "Welsh Onion; to increase thy sperme" but we decided to leave that one ....

Lychis Coronra 
 Hyssopus Officnals is 
 Allum Lily


The end result? a beautiful (even if I do say so myself) and original set of fine bone china and tea towel.
