Lou's Patch

Lou's Patch


‘Lou’s Patch’ featured several dahlia’s and their architectural leaves. Comprised of mostly corals and oranges, this print celebrates the pantone colour of the year for 2019.

My Grandfather Louis Cornish was the President of the Dahlia Society of San Francisco. He died in 2017, and this is a tribute to his horticultural love. He grew a lot of dahlia’s, and even smuggled a few tubers into different countries. We visited San Francisco in 2001 but most of our three week trip was spent watering his plants and visiting shopping malls in the bay area so he could judge flowers grown by other dahlia enthusiasts in various competitions. We were also dragged along to the dahlia garden in the Golden Gate Park - where I confess, his success and passion was lost on me at that particular time in my life. He sadly died before he could share his growing secrets with me and my own love of growing flowers came to the fore. Today we are growing our own dahlia’s on our allotment plot.
