Lady with Flowers

lady-with-flowersTake time to smell the flowers appears to be words that this lady with flowers is truly living by.

Amidst a lot of little sketch-like drawings and letter images, the author of Ballads of Beauty included this beautiful drawing of a lady smelling flowers in a large garden planter. There are some just visible letters in the bottom left-hand corner but other than that, this vintage drawing remains unattributable. The compilation of poetry where this image was found was published in 1878, so I think we can be fairly certain our lady with flowers is in the public domain.

This image is copyright free and in the public domain anywhere that extends copyrights 70 years after death or at least 120 years after publication when the original illustrator is unknown.
