A Bee Gathers Honey from Every Flower

watercolour and gouache

How doth the little busy bee
Improve each shining hour,
And gather honey all the day
From every opening flower!

Isaac Watts

From the series Seeds of Love and Lust, which re-imagines botanical idioms into a gardening guide for tending to one’s love life. Each illustration corresponds its own idiom, and is accompanied by a piece of advice for the lover/gardener.
