Botanical Trend - Beautiful botanical's continue to be on trend throughout 2016 into SS 2017.
As my own garden suddenly seems to have come to life with leaves on the trees and Hawthorn hedge, the verdant green and large leaves of modern Botanics can be seen on a range of products in the high street from home-wares to fashion...
Away from the high street you can see the real thing in the restored Paxton's Pavilion of Sheffield's Botanical Gardens - situated in Sheffield, South Yorkshire, England. The Gardens are a great space especially if you are looking for a little botanical inspiration or a quiet space away from city life. Originally designed by Robert Marnock in the 19th Century, they are still considered to be one of Britain's best Gardenesque style landscapes. The gardens along with Joseph Paxton's glasshouses were restored and re-opened in 2007. For more information about this Grade II listed space and the 19 acres of this city garden check out their website here...
