Beatrix Potter drew her pictures in pen, brown ink, and watercolours. This is one of the illustrations from her picture books which are loved around the world. When making this book, Beatrix Potter was staying with an aunt and uncle in Wales. She described their garden at Gwaeynynog as ‘the prettiest kind’, where old-fashioned flowers mingled with currant bushes, and she loved to draw it.

Beatrix Potter had to pay for her first book, The Tale of Peter Rabbit (1902), to be published. It was followed by over 20 more.
