Cornwall comes to life in the spring, with a burst of joyful, vivid colour as the land wakes up after the long winter. The hedgerows overflow with wildflowers and woods are transformed by swathes of bluebells. This is the perfect time of year to explore the coast path, stopping off at beachside cafés to soak up the view and watch the waves roll in.
For this month’s palette, we’ve borrowed a selection of pretty spring colours. Sophie and Kathryn couldn’t resist taking a closer look at all the wildflowers for our unique prints, and they filled their sketchbooks with watercolour and ink drawings of cornflowers, milkwort, clover, daisies, periwinkles and wild chervil.
This delicate and detailed floral was created by Sophie and Kathryn. Inspired by wildflowers found growing in Cornish hedgerows, this beautiful hand printed design captures the essence of spring.
