    Learning to paint together as children, Harriet and Helena Scott became two of the finest capturers of native plants anywhere in the world, creating hundreds of drawings in their home on Ash Island on the Hunter River, NSW in the mid-1800s. Collected and published here for the first time thanks to Marion Ord are fifty of their most beautiful illustrations from Ash Island.
