Hampton Court Flower Show 2018

Battlefields to Butterflies at the Hampton Court flower show

This project has been over two years in the making with the Royal Parks Guild and the Historic Royal Places. Originally conceived from the words and paintings of William Orpen who wrote, “The dreary dismal mud was baked white and pure — dazzling white. White daisies, red poppies and a blue flower, great masses of them, stretched for miles and miles. The sky was a pure dark blue, and the whole air… thick with white butterflies.” after his visit to the Somme battlefield in August 1917.

We are proud to be associated with such a project and you can read more by following the following links:
