It's very hard to convey, in a photograph, the truly beautiful physical quality of the ink & it's colour on this gorgeously soft-to-touch paper - very tactile!

Inspiration

Flora Day a celebration of spring.

Helston in Cornwall gets decked in Flora & Dancing goes on All day. Everyone wears Lily of the Valley.

When my son was little we used to walk through Bluebell-carpeted Penrose to get to Flora Day - usually early in the morning to watch the Hal-an-Tow.

As he grew older, he used to appear at the front door - often in his wetsuit after a post school harbour jumping session - clutching a little bunch of hedge flowers. "For you Muma". Li'l heart-melter!
