I love everything about this stunning card by Scottish artist Hannah Longmuir. The beautiful design is printed across the entire card to wrap around and it comes with such a gorgeous coral lined envelope! This colourful drawing is all about the wonderful weeds that every garden should have. Buttercups, nettles, daisies, dandelions, clover – all the weeds that gardeners fight against all summer long – provide essential food and habitats for butterflies, bees, hoverflies and insects. One nettle patch can be host to more than 40 species of insect. The insects also serve as food for birds and mammals. Clover and dandelions are great for soil quality, too. If you want a colourful garden full of life you have to embrace those weeds!
The design is printed across the fold and wraps around the card. The cards are sent flat for display purposes for you to then fold to fit the envelope. It posts as a standard letter size. Each card comes with kraft envelope with a fabulous coral-coloured liner.
Size: 15xm x 30cm (or 15cm square when folded)
This card is one of a collection of cards that Hannah created called ‘A Garden for Wildlife…’ as a tribute to her parents who were both excellent gardeners and created little wildlife havens in their gardens. Every card sold helps to raise money for the ongoing work of her local Macmillan Centre where her mum was cared for for many years. These cards are designed, manufactured and packaged by hand in the UK. They are printed on FSC approved card stock sourced from sustainable mixed forests. The original drawings are done in pencil & watercolour. The designs are inspired by the rich variety of the British countryside. Hannah is passionate about helping people to feel connected with the fields, hedgerows and woodlands around them, as it’s only by loving and enjoying the countryside can we learn to care for it.
