Picked from the woodland clearings and roadside verge, these abundant rosebay willowherbs are arranged in a tall terracotta vessel with a moss green tinted rim. Rosebay Willowherb has grown in number from a scarce woodland plant to a ubiquitous flower. Chamerion angustifolium is also known in the South East UK as 'Bombweed'. The two World Wars cleared and burnt huge areas of forest and farmland creating just the right conditions for this plant to colonise and thrive. The picked loose blackberry branch with berries verging on ripening adds to this painting a late summer ambience. Taken from the original oil painting by Anne Cotterill. The large rectangle greeting card is blank inside and is 15cm x 20cm ( 6" x 8" approx).
