This lovely selection of flowers combined well, with their complimentary habits and colours. They are all from the gardens of HRH Prince Hassan bin Talal and Princess Sarvath of Jordan, who were kind enough to allow the artist access to their garden. Wayne Watson, the Head Gardener of Their Royal Highnesses, was a key element of the process, with his knowledge of the plants.
