A Floral Gift

petal & pins hydrangea gown print

Sunday May the 9th is Mothers Day in Australia and a print from my Garden Fairy’s Wardrobe range would make a lovely gift.

Pictured is the Hydrangea Gown – Hydrangeas remind me of my grandmother, I remember watching  and learning from her what to do with the stems before putting them in a vase.

Nasturtium flowers are one I associate with my mother – I have designed and written about them previously in Slightly Defiant & Carefree .

My signed art prints are made with a high quality digital inkjet printer using fine cotton rag art paper and water based archival inks for beautiful long lasting images.

Available in A4 and A3 sizes from the petal & pins online shop (we ship worldwide) and  selected retailers .

In May you can also find me at the following design markets –

Sunday 1st May in Hobart at the market.

Friday to Sunday 6th, 7th & 8th May in Adelaide at Bowerbird Bazaar

Is there a flower that reminds you of your mother or grandmother?


With Love

I have read that Chrysanthemums have gone out of vogue in home gardens, but obviously not in Tasmania where the annual Chrysanthemum & Floral Art Show is one of the highlights of the Hobart Horticultural Society’s Calendar.

Unfortunately I missed seeing it last weekend but I have this pink one and also a pretty yellow one with rusty green foliage growing in my garden.

Chrysanthemums are synonymous with Mothers Day in Australia – which is today so Happy Mothers Day to my mum and all the other mums out there – have a lovely day!
