This small stumpwork panel was inspired by the illuminated pages of medieval manuscripts. Embroidered on a background of ivory satin, this design features the Wild Pea, Lathyrus sylvestris, a summer-flowering perennial, with detached flower petals and leaves, and a beaded seed pod. Nestled amongst the foliage are a Longhorn Moth, Adela reamurella, with golden raised wings and extraordinarily long antennae, and a tiny Two-spot Ladybird, Adalia bipunctata, with detached elytra. The panel is enclosed by an ornate border, worked in silk ribbon, gold thread and beads.
