Bog Asphodel (Narthecium ossifragum)

A bright spiky yellow plant that turns to orange after flowering. It lives up to its name, inhabiting the moorland bogs of the Oa here on Islay and can cause photosensitivity if grazed by sheep.

This Bog Asphodel was sketched on a quiet Oa roadside near our home. After sketching we then transfer the design onto lino and carve it with a fine tool. Every card is hand printed and therefore unique. We use vegetable oil-based inks and our cards and envelopes are made from recycled paper and packaged in recycled tissue paper.
