The Girl's Own

Whilst out treasure seeking on Sunday, for some lovely bits for the fair, I treated myself to this beautiful old copy of 'The Girl's Own Annual'.
Not dated inside, but I would put it at just prior to the 1920's...
There are some great articles of the time inside, but what drew me most to this old book were the dreamy floral colour plates dispersed throughout...which I thought you might like to see...

Early Spring Violets
Primroses from an English Lane
Just Gathered from the Rose Walk
A Bowl of Roses
Lilac in a Ginger Jar
Hope you like them as much as I do...
I'll leave you with some photos of the auricular and miniature daffodils flowering on my doorstep just now...

Enjoy the sunshine,
