Antique Botanical Illustration for Crafts, Collage, Scrapbooking or Card Making: Flowering Angel Trumpet (Brugmansia suaveolens)

“May I a small house and large garden have;
And a few friends,
And many books, both true.”
― Abraham Cowley

A botanical illustration from Henderson's Handbook of Plants that shows a small flowering tree growing in a landscaped, walled garden. The tree is actually semi-woody shrub called Brugmansia suaveolens, also commonly known as angel trumpet or angel's tears. The remarkably beautiful flowers (usually white but can be yellow or pink) are sweetly fragrant in the evenings so they can attract pollinating moths but hang half-closed during the day. A lovely graphic to embellish a greeting card, mixed media or scrapbook project. You can download the high-resolution 6” x 7.5” @ 300 ppi JPEG here.

“My two favourite things in life are libraries and bicycles. They both move people forward without wasting anything. The perfect day: riding a bike to the library.”
― Peter Golkin

“I have found the best way to give advice to your children is to find out what they want and then advise them to do it.”
― Harry Truman

First-generation digital scan of a black and white illustration from an 1892 magazine. The illustration shows a Victorian woman (a mother?) walking along a country lane with a young boy riding an antique bicycle (well, antique to us but probably the latest and greatest model to the intrepid youngster) beside her. You can download the 10" x 14.5" @ 300 ppi JPEG for crafts, collage, scrapbooking or card making here.
