Butterfly prints by 18th century naturalists inspired the butterfly image on this colorful accent pillow. An unknown author once wrote, "Love is like a butterfly...it goes where it pleases, and it pleases wherever it goes." Visitors to the Historic Area gardens in June will find plenty of butterflies to admire. The perennial beds at the Governor's Palace are an abundant mixture of summer phlox, spiderwort, daylily and the Yorktown onion. The parterre garden to the west of the ballroom is planted with orange and yellow lantana, whose bright colors attract many butterflies. Handmade with a pure wool face, cotton velvet zippered back, and polyfill insert, this decorative pillow can be valued as much for its artistic detail as its soft comfort. Imported.
World exploration and natural discoveries had a profound effect on 18th-century Europe and North America. Naturalists recorded what they saw, and soon these depictions of "new" specimens, like butterflies, were incorporated into prints, ceramics, textiles, and other objects. The fascination and romance of natural designs was strong then and remains enchanting today.
