Growing Like a Tree

I decided to pick up my Growing Like a Tree WIP. I got a few stitches in last night. Here is where it is at...

Growing Like a Tree progress (a Moira Blackburn sampler)

The fabric is actually Antique Ivory, and not white/grey as it appears in this photo.

My wildflower garden has thrown up a few more beauties. This time some pink and purple cornflowers. It seems that the 'high country meadow' mix is what is flowering at the moment. Hopefully the others (a bee mix, delphiniums etc) will flower as summer progresses.

Wild flower meadows are so beautiful to look at and provide a wonderful habitat to attract birds and butterflys.

Your sampler is beautiful too.

Hope you are having a better summer than we are getting up here in taranaki... lot of the time too wet to get out in the garden so grasses is growing well were it is not wanted.
