I have been reading Jane Lindsey's blog Snapdragon's Garden for over 18 months now and she is a constant source of inspiration.  I first came across Jane as a fellow blogger for WiRE (Women in Rural Enterprise) and loved to follow the news and photos from her cutting garden in Scotland.

Since then it has been such fun to watch her build her business from a seasonal one - selling home grown flowers, to a year round success having added a wonderful (and ever growing) product range of hand-crafted textiles.

It's been a pleasure to share her excitement and apprehension as she tries out new products and new ways to market, takes on staff and makes plans for the future.

So it was with a big smile that I opened a hand-written envelope today and found this inside.

Snapdragon-catalogue

Snapdragon's first mail order catalogue, complete with hand-written note.  It is lovely – small and perfectly formed and sums up all that inspires me about Jane's business.

I so admire her dedication to growing her business, her flowers and her family (not to mention her chickens!).  And I just love her attention to detail. I am sure she will go from strength to strength.

My own brochure is currently at the printers – I hope it turns out as beautiful as this one.
