Margaret Erskine Wilson, late President of Kendal Natural History Society, was a keen amateur botanist and water-colourist. In 1999, she donated to the Society 150 sheets of watercolour paintings representing a thousand British and Irish plants in flower and in fruit, painted in situ over many years and in various places. At the time she donated the paintings to Kendal Natural History Society, she wrote: Begun in 1943/4 for a friend who said, 'I might learn the names of flowers if you drew them for me, in the months they're in flower!' The result is this beautiful, previously-unpublished book of all her accurate and informative illustrations, painted over a period of 45 years. This book today still serves Margaret s original purpose in that it is indeed an attractive way to learn the names of our delicate and beautiful wild flowers.

Review:

Her accurate and informative illustrations, painted over a period of 45 years, still serves for us today Margaret's original purpose, but it is much more than being an attractive way to learn the names of our delicate and beautiful wild flowers; it is something to treasure as a collection of artwork in itself. It is one of those special books that you pick up to have a look at and simply cannot put it down again. Exquisite. --Caroline Reece, Waterstones (Kendal), Westmorland Gazette

About the Author:

Margaret Erskine Wilson (b.1915), read modern languages at Girton College Cambridge, then studied Textile Design at the Central School of Arts and Crafts in London, until the war broke out in 1939. A career teacher, she finally moved to teach in the Lake District. She painted flowers all her life and exhibited at the Royal Horticultural Society's Botanical Art Show in London, winning silver medals on at least two occasions. She died in 2009 and donated many of her paintings of wild flowers to the Kendal Natural History Society of which she was a former President.
