The Owl and the Pussycat


Box set of 9 ‘The Owl and the Pussycat’ greeting cards & white envelopes.

SKU: DFW-BXA6-0122 Categories: ,


The owl (moth) and the pussy cat (bird) went to sea in a beautiful pea green boat (orchid)…
My apologies to Edward Lear for making his nonsense poem even more nonsensical… Ever since I discovered that cymbidium orchids are also referred to as boat orchids I have been desperate to paint this picture… I love that nothing is as it is meant to be, and as a fan of Twin Peaks I love that I can now say that the “owls are not what they seem.” Both the green catbird and the zig zag white banded owl moth are native to Australia, and the cymbidium iridioides, well it is just a beautiful pea green (and red striped) boat orchid.

This boxed set holds nine blank inside greeting cards and plain white envelopes featuring this catbird and owl moth. Just what you need to send to nine of your nearest and dearest!
