To learn more about Mrs. Delaney, read this Wikipedia article.
Author Molly Peacock has written a book titled The Paper Garden: Mrs. Delany Begins her life's Work at 72, where she looks at the life of Mary Delany and at her vast collection of work.
I have this plant in my garden and it never fails to inspire me with first it's lovely shaped leaves and then it's colourful flowers. Yes, it does get large edible berries, I don't like their flavour.
A quick google search found thousands of images of Mary and her work.
I will select a commenter to receive one of these amazing postcards in the mail. My choice of cards. Open to international participants.
