Nature in Print

"Nature is what we see,
The Hill, the Afternoon -
Squirrel, Eclipse, the Bumble-bee,
Nay - Nature is Heaven.

Nature is what we hear,
The Bobolink, the Sea -
Thunder, the Cricket -
Nay - Nature is Harmony........"

 By Emily Dickinson (1830-86)

It is the small things in life that give the greatest joys. A thoughtful gesture, your child's loving embrace, moments of quiet and reflection - all are filled with solace and joy. So is a stroll on a tree lined avenue, where one can admire the riches of nature - flowers, leaves, birds - blooming and bountiful, brimming over with life.

Marimekko, on our feature today, is an acclaimed Finnish design house well known for its brightly colored prints, many of them nature inspired. Here's a selection of few that I found delightfully eye-catching. Browse and revel in their beauty in a moment of silence. Wonder at the ways Nature inspires us and the shapes it can take in our imagination..
