The weather outside might be frightful, but today's Google's Doodle is so delightful.?
In a tribute to British horticulturalist and garden designer Gertrude Jekyll on what would be her 174th birthday, Google has created a stunning floral-themed doodle which is full of the joys of spring.
"If not for legendary horticulturist and garden designer Gertrude Jekyll, the world might be a much drabber place," reads a Google blog post about the doodle.?
The Google Doodle was made by British artist Ben Giles, who channeled Jekyll's penchant for "hot and cool colours" in order to craft a "lush and brilliant garden collage."
"A woman of innumerable talents, Jekyll was also an acchartph.complished musician, chartph.composer, woodworker, metalworker, and botanist," the blog continues.
Google showed the artistic process which went into building the collage in a series of images.?
Here are some shots of the colourful collage being put together by the artist.?
There's even a miniature cut-out of Jekyll herself.?
