I’m so excited about this latest printable offering for AOC subscribers! Not only are they a pretty and easy way to add beauty to your decor (you can frame them, clip them to a vintage clipboard, or simply washi tape them to any surface), they are also near and dear to my heart for a couple reasons.
First, the watercolors were created from photographs I had taken of flowers in our previous cottage’s yard (you can see a tour here). They were some of my favorites that I chose for their beauty and the way that they would coordinate with each other (if you choose to display them together).
Second, I thought the garden quotes I found were PERFECT. I mean, “plant your own garden,” we should “smell like dirt” in spring, and spring being the time of planning and projects pretty much sums up gardener’s thoughts in spring and beyond, right?
Then of course, it’s been a little while since I’ve added a new freebie for you in the AOC VIP Subscriber’s Library, so I’m happy to get these beauties in your hands for that reason, too.
Printable Floral Watercolor Garden Quotes
The first print was created from a photograph of David Austin’s Gertrude Jekyll English rose in bud. This rose is actually a lighter pink than it seems from this watercolor when it’s in full bloom, though the buds are a bit darker. The shadows created a darker pink bud after turning it into a watercolor, I think. Isn’t that bud shape just about perfect?
And I think this may just be my favorite quote of the bunch – maybe it should become our gardener’s motto?
Don’t wait for someone to bring you flowers. Plant your own garden and decorate your own soul.
I had to look up who Luther Burbank was – he was a botanist who lived from 1849 to 1926, developing more than 800 strains and varieties of plants over his career. Impressive. Go here to read more if you’re interested.
Since hydrangeas are my favorite flower, I had to include one, even though they don’t have the same impact as roses in prints like these. This is actually an Endless Summer hydrangea that starts out blue and then changes to this beautiful pink and green as it ages. So pretty.
And who knew that Margaret Atwood (author of The Handmaid’s Tale and more) is a gardener?
In the spring, at the end of the day, you should smell like dirt.
Or like the compost that you’re laying over paper under your hydrangeas to keep weeds away and hold in that moisture that they love!
Finally, we have what may be David Austen’s most popular rose, Abraham Darby. It’s just SO photogenic! I was able to capture many wonderful photos of it over the years and it’s pinky-apricot color always looked fabulous.
Leo Tolstoy didn’t beat around the bush, either:
Spring is the time of plans and projects.
Yep – and that maybe my favorite part of the gardening season (well, until I start harvesting the food and flowers to enjoy inside, that is!).
