Antique Botanical Illustration for Crafts, Scrapbooking or Graphic Design: 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 a standard shrub of 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 use in crafts or to embellish greeting cards and scrapbook pages.
