This puzzle, featuring an exclusive illustration by Dutch artist Valesca van Waveren, is inspired by the words “All good things are wild and free,” written by Henry David Thoreau in Walking. As you complete the puzzle, piece by piece, you may be reminded of the simple joys of being in nature: a traveling snail, a fruiting tree, the hum of a grasshopper, sparkling constellations, the strong trunk of an oak, and more.
Celebrate the Queen of Flowers. A story of love at first sight, Frances Palmer became obsessed with dahlias the moment she spotted one in a gardening book. Today, growing dahlias is her passion, and the flowers, in all sizes and colors, fill her extraordinary pots as if they were made for each other. In this 750-piece puzzle, trace a journey that begins in the earth—in a bulb, in clay—and ends in a work of dizzying beauty.
This puzzle features an illustration from Dutch artist Lotte Dirks, and it is filled with her love for everything that grows and flourishes. As you piece it together, you may find your imagination drifting down a winding country lane, to a white picket fence with an open gate, to a yard where the flowers bloom and chickens range freely, to a special place where you can kick off your shoes and just be yourself.
