SEASONAL LOVE

SEASONAL LOVE

Silken Favours new collection – Seasonal love, is a joyous mix of British floral and fauna, moving through the seasons, each design depicts that time through intricate illustration of birds, animals, flowers and colour, telling the story of, Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter.
The Bee design was created to help raise awareness for the Friends of the Earth ‘Bee cause’ through a collaboration with my Chelsea hotel.
The design shows Bees surrounding wild flowers and fruit that are good to plant to help save the bees.

Vicki’s mum Gail Murdoch pens a poem for each of Vicki’s silk designs
The inspired poems are below,

Bees

Team player extraordinaire, honey purveyor

Queens of the comb

Pollen distributor, all-life contributor

Appraise bee and Praise Be!

This be their poem

Spring

Fledglings gape with yellow beak

Parent birds can never sleep

Blossoms bloom, clematis climb

Spring is such a busy time

Summer

Hazy, lazy toasting on the beach

While swallows swoop and swifts screech

Soft, balmy evenings spent with many friends

These are joyful moments summer sends

Autumn

Ripened plums drop with a soft sound

Lacy webs festoon the sodden ground

The wasps all turn grumpy

It’s time to brew scrumpy

Autumn

Winter

Misty breath and rosy cheeks

Scrunchy snow on snowy peaks

Skeins of geese stretch up above

Winter is the time I love
