Vintage Botanicals

Somehow, the end of summer always reminds me of vintage botanical prints. Part of the season's appeal is the change in daylight that gives everything a painterly look. And, I'm happy with cooler temperatures that draw me back to our gardens as autumn nears. It's my favorite time of year!

Vintage botanical prints are much like the transition of seasons to me. They capture the essence of nature's cycle and bring the beauty near for us to enjoy long past their harvest.

Having just completed the annual harvest at our little olive grove, I feel particularly drawn to the natural beauty outside and appreciate ways others have extended nature's influence indoors.

I'm a sucker for rustic character, and these botanicals offer loads of both.  Images: left (via) and right (via).

Often, I come across room photos that express all the charm and character of vintage botanical art without one printed canvas. I can only imagine that these spaces are marvelous places to spend an afternoon, or perhaps a season.

After summer comes autumn, or in my world, Botanical Bliss!
