This design was produced by Morris & Co at Merton Abbey, Surrey, in 1883. The intricate design was created by William Morris, with the birds probably being drawn by Philip Webb. It was inspired by a real-life problem one that is familiar to many gardeners. In his garden at Kelmscott Manor, Morris tried to grow strawberries but found that these were always being eaten by greedy thrushes who managed to creep under the netting. Morris allowed them to do so enjoying their efforts to remove the strawberries. Recalling their attempts, he designed this remarkable furnishing textile pattern, taken directly from the natural world. The gentle humor in this pattern helped to make it one of Morriss's most successful creations.
