Jane loves botanical drawings and recently purchased a fabulous book from Kew Gardens with the most wonderful illustrations.There is a page within the book that features sunflowers, hellebores and opium poppy seed heads and it made her think of the fields of sunflowers we walked through on a lovely French holiday a few years ago.
Jane has always loved sunflowers with all of their connotations to heat and sunshine and Vincent Van Gogh, whose series of sunflower still life studies are infamous, saw these stunning flowers as a symbol of friendship and gratitude, so using them as the inspiration for a new design was inevitable, and as wild poppies are common place in fields of sunflowers, it was logical that this design should feature them too.
