This fine art counted cross stitch pattern entitled The Garden of Hesperides by Sir Edward Coley Burne-Jones shows a scene based on Greek mythology where we have a tree in Hera's garden that bears golden apples which is protected and tended to by three Hesperides or nymphs. The nymphs sometimes take some of the apples for themselves, but Hera has also placed a 100-headed dragon in the garden to keep an eye on the nymphs to make sure they are not stealing too many of the golden apples. Notice there is a serpent intertwined around the tree which is reminiscent of the biblical Garden of Eden. No blended colors are used in our patterns. We only use an abundance of solid colors as it produces a more realistic effect. Only full cross stitches are used in our designs.
