Beautiful, beautiful prints I found at the Royal Horticulture Society. They are images from a Victorian 1895 Children's Book "The Alphabet of Flowers". How lovely these prints would look in my little girl's room!
What is your favorite? I love the illustration of S for Sweet William.


  1. These are lovely and my favorite is always tulip...have a great weekend! : )

  2. I love the passion flower illustration- I actually collect alphabets and this one is beyond wonderful. I like P the best because of the carnation being called a "pink" I guess that fell out of usage because of more colors being available?

  3. Even though I also tend to lean toward tulips, I love the desert cactus illustration! After 4 years I guess I am getting more accustomed to living in the desert myself!


leave some love
