International Women’s Day 2018 and 100 years of votes for women
Whilst wondering through the Princess of Wales greenhouse at Kew Gardens I spotted an unusual plant in purple white and green and it immediately brought me to mind of the colours of the women’s suffragette movement.
The ladies of the movement wore sashes and rosettes in these colours. Purple signified dignity, white purity and green hope.
Once at home I put together this collage of other plants in this scheme to celebrate International Women’s Day 2018 and 100 years since the first votes for some women in our country.
