Favourite florals

Choose your favourite bloom and WIN A PRINT

The DM Collection is celebrating May flowers this month - offering you the chance to WIN A PRINT of the DM design featuring your favourite bloom.

Enter the Favourite Florals competition - closes MIDDAY Thursday 25 May 2017. 

Daniel's paintings depict creatures in all kinds of habitats, but none are more beautiful living environments that those filled with nature's beauty - flowers. 

You can win one of four of Daniel's best-loved floral designs as a medium size art print. Enter here by clicking on the name of your preferred creature and filling in the short entry form (then Submit!). 

The four creatures you can choose your favourite from are:

The Butterfly fluttering around the blush pink peonies. It's wings are reimagined in Daniel's original watercolour as a hand-tied bouquet of floral delight. 

The Meadow Hare rushing through the long grass, disturbing the abundance of wild flowers as it goes. Daisies, buttercups, clover and more delicate petals are swept up on its coat. 

The Bumblebee buzzing between the brilliant yellow buttercups. Daniel's hand-painted illustration wove these blooms to form its distinctive stripes. 

The grey cat prowling its chosen territory - this cat owns the rose garden. The soft pink of the flowers' petals perfectly compliment his soft grey fur, as he basked beneath them in the sun. 

Enter the Favourite Florals competition - closes MIDDAY Thursday 25 May.

I love this story! It is old, it comes from the 2nd Centry, probably from Greece. Sailors mistake sleeping whales for islands. They would tether their ships to the “island”, disembark and set up camp. The whale would then plunge to the depths of the ocean sinking all the ships and drowning the sailor

Fighting like cat and dog

Why our favourite pets are enemies

The DM Cats and Dogs sit side by side without a ruckus, but in the real world it’s not quite the same. The two popular pets often fight or at least reach a state of resentful co-existence. But according to a Chinese legend it wasn’t always so....
