Thank you for the info about Ravilious - I had no idea he did anything for Wedgewood and this is certainly a very stylish mug. I especially like the way the hyacinth accentuates the colours of the other blooms - a great choice.

Linda from Each Little World

I love his paintings and illustrations and many are of scenes that you would probably be familiar with.

I love the history of the mugs and the flowers....and they make the perfect spring vase!

Loree / danger garden

Ah thank you for the introduction to Eric Ravilious...and you assemble a charming spring bouquet!

Christina

Fascinating information and a lovely vase.

Susan Adler Sobol

It was your comment about the Ravilious mug on Style Court (years ago!) that lead me correspond with you! Did you know he designed dishes for Wedgwood in the 1930's called "The Garden Series"? Like the Coronation Mug, the dishes were issued in the early 50's.

Loree — Also check out Evelyn Dunbar, Charles Mahoney and Edward Bawden. All faves of mine.​

Lisa at Greenbow

Most appropriate with the Queen having her birthday now. Nice daffs. I think after a couple of days in the 80's I can say mine are finished for the year.

Linda from Each Little World

Susan — I had forgotten that was our original link! I have seen pictures of those dishes but never found a single one to buy. It would be so delightful to own a few.

Lisa — ​We are fluctuating between normal and very warm. It is almost too hot for me to work in the garden and the rain that keeps getting forecast never seems to arrive.

I caught a snippet of conversation about Ravilious on Start the Week this morning. I think someone may have published a book about his work. I especially like his watercolours of the South Downs, for the colours and the composition. Anyway lovely vase - both contents and container.

Kris P

It's a lovely composition, Linda, and I enjoyed the accompanying history. I can't think of a better way to give a nod to the queen as a belated birthday greeting.

Amelia

A vase filled with Spring, beautiful historic daffs.

Beth @ PlantPostings

Lovely--and an appropriate homage to the queen. My Daffs and Hellebores are finished blooming (well, the Hellebores still have blooms but they're seeding now). Everything is happening so fast and early this year. Thanks for the info on the Wedgwoods and Ravilious, too. Learned something new. :)
