The Hortus floridus Iessi is a collection of flower watercolors inspired by seventeenth-century European flower books. It is a long-term project as stress relief from my PhD research on the same subject. 

Take a look at the growing collection here. Visit the call for reference photos to learn more about contributing to this paper garden by sending in reference photos of selected flowers.
