Royal Horticultural Society Prints
Swoon. These beautiful illustrations are just a few examples of what you'll find on RHS Prints, the Royal Horticultural Society's extensive (and gorgeous) image collection website. Not only are these images lovely to look at, but you can also purchase high quality prints of them from the site, too. And if you'd rather be inspired by the real thing, the RHS Chelsea Flower Show in London is coming up soon on May 24-29!
I may very well be ordering a print for myself soon, too ...
