Fox & Cubs - Last Limited Edition of 2020
Like a field of hot coals fox and cubs crowds parts of the Rosedale churchyard from June until late October every year.
A perennial member of the daisy family, fox and cubs (pilosella aurantiaca) has many names including tawny hawkweed, Flora's paintbrush and golden mouse ear. Its name refers to the way that many of the unopened flower heads hide beneath those that are already open.
It is alleged that hawks eat these wildflowers and that is the reason for their superb eyesight...
The seed head, dancing atop a slender stem, is both smaller and coarser than it’s relative the dandelion, but remains a vital source of nectar and pollen for bees.
Introduced to the UK in the 17th Century as a garden plant from the Alpine region of Europe, my morning dog walks give me a good reason to stop and admire this beautiful wildflower.
Made in two sizes, this bowl is a warm transparent reddy orange with a warm yellow lip wrap.
Hand blown, hand engraved glass, signed dated and numbered.
All UK orders will be delivered by December 18th at the latest, international orders will be individually advised.
