Botanical artist and former Wisbech landlady Lucille Carter has just published her calendar for 2014, crammed with stunning pictures of flora from her native Australia and around the world.
This is the second year that Lucille has created a colourful calendar. and now six readers have the chance to win one of these eye catching creations.
Mrs Carter said: 'Since retiring as a landlady I have more time to dedicate to preparing my work, and I think this year's calendar is even better than last year's.'
As a member of the Society of Botanical Artists, Mrs Carter is required to submit five paintings to the society's annual exhibition held in Westminster Gallery, opposite Westminster Abbey in central London each year.
All 13 of the prints on the calendar are taken from Mrs Carter's original water colours that have been on show at the exhibition over the last nine years.
