Wild Flowers of Britain Month by Month
Beautiful and informative, this jewel-like collection of 1000 British and Irish wild flowers were painted by school teacher Margaret Wilson over 45 years, in order to help her friend to recognise the different species. Her watercolours continue to educate and enchant today.
Margaret Erskine Wilson, late President of Kendal Natural History Society, was a keen amateur botanist and water-colourist. In 1999, she donated to the Society 150 sheets of watercolour paintings representing a thousand British and Irish plants in flower and in fruit, painted in situ over many years and in various places.
