  1. Such a great pattern. I never get tired of Wm Morris prints. You’re brave to try to draw one – they’re so complicated, but as he says, also so rational and recurring.

    • Well I had a little technological help from the illustrator’s friend, the light box, employed for a little tracing of the bones. Otherwise I would have been hopelessly lost in the shrubbery. It was good to look closely and try and figure out how Morris makes these enduring designs. I read that in an unlined curtain, sun shining through makes the pattern (the little white flowers in particular)twinkle like fairy lights.

  2. I did so love my fritillaries in my Alaska garden. Nothing— then arching, sensuous splendor, —- then nothing. Pure magic. Do you have them on Bainbridge? Thank you for the recurring delight of your posts, Katy. I’d like to pay you a visit some Monday… my day off from nannying. Let me know when it might be possible?

    • I. Have five wispy fritillaries. They might like damp better than my sunny front garden, but I hope they will come back. Like you say, all traces are gone now. Lovely to hear you might come. I will write you!

  3. Your rendition is beautiful. I’ve long been a William Morris fan. I love fritillaries too but don’t have much luck with them,

I love to read your comments - thank you so much for taking the time to leave one!
