Spring Flowers and Vintage Books

 So now we're into Spring and we'll soon be seeing these gorgeous Spring flowers for real not just in the wonderful illustrations by B. E. Nicholson found in The Illustrated Book Of Garden Flowers published

 in 1979 by Peerage Books, London.

But I'm thinking that we'll still have to wrap up warm and snuggly like the young lady above from the 1920's
Lucky Girl's Budget published by Blackie & Son Ltd.

Though hopefully we'll pass on the snow!


  1. Thanks for dropping by.Yes,Spring will soon be here,and hopefully some warm sunshine along with the flowers..there's a biting wind here today! :0)

  2. Thank you for your comment - I am hopeful that sales will be good.

    My poor spring flowers in the garden are wondering what they've done wrong tonight - hopefully the frost won't harm them.

  3. Just discovered your pretty blog from Bellaboo. Always love to see garden flower illustrations. The colours are just so vibrant. Beautiful. x
