I love botanical drawings and recently purchased a fabulous book from Kew Gardens with the most wonderful illustrations. There is a page within the book that features sunflowers, hellebore and opium poppy seed heads and it made me think of the fields of sunflowers we walked through on a lovely French holiday a few years ago.
I have always loved sunflowers with all of their connotations to heat and sunshine. Vincent Van Gogh, whose series of sunflower still life studies are infamous, saw these stunning flowers as a symbol of friendship and gratitude, so using them as the inspiration for a new design was inevitable. As wild poppies are common place in fields of sunflowers, it was logical that this design should feature them too!
