21-22 October 2014: Royal Horticultural Society see works by Julia Trickey.

How’s this for a fabulous and uplifting thing to do next week?

RHS London Shades of Autumn Show

Taking place across the Lindley and Lawrence Halls, Tues 21 & Weds 22 Oct, this show is a glorious celebration of autumn colour, with specialist nurseries showing the best in seasonal interest plants. In 2014, for the first time, the show will also feature exhibits of botanical art alongside the RHS Photography exhibit and an innovative new 3D printing exhibition.

tulipThe botanical art includes work by our author Julia Trickey, whose book ‘Plant Portraits by Post: Post & Go British Flora’ is at proof stage and will be published in November.

Here’s what Julia says: ‘I have spent most of the last seven months painting parrot tulips with my, almost signature, black backgrounds’.
