Just wanted to share these two lovely second-hand finds of mine.
The ceramic dish will hold my hair clips or something similar. It's a Johnson Brothers pattern with the finest pinky sea shells and coral.
And a weighty tome: Plants and Animals, published 1974 in Prague. I'll scan some pictures in soon. I know you'll like them.
For some very beautiful botanical painting click on this: White Clover by Yasuko Enjyoji.
