My garden

This photograph is the inspiration behind my current embroidery.  It was taken last year when the Highlands enjoyed one of the rare hot summers.    Today it is 21C here again.  I don’t think I’ve ever know two good summers in a row.    My garden is again looking beautiful with geraniums,  an escallonia, sweet Williams, nasturtiums, Michaelmas daisies, a peachy climbing rose, a white climbing rose and all framed by the wisteria which has gone a bit mad.    Image

My tools

These are the tools of my trade. I can’t think of anything better than sitting down to a new embroidery and sorting out the threads needed to try to recapture the colours and textures of the highlands.
