Mercia Bees


Mercia Bees is a smaller scale print in the English Mercia collection, with a 6” horizontal half drop repeat. It features the short-haired bumblebee, a species driven to extinction in England, but recently reintroduced into specially planted flower-rich meadows in the region of Dungeness. The bees are foraging on clover, and pheasant’s eye, a rare wildflower introduced to the UK in Roman times.
