pinks and lilacs
Tuesday's post… I have lots of baby projects in the works and I'm looking forward to sharing them here!
In the garden, there are granny's bonnets popping up all over the place. The purple ones are covered in tiny greenfly, but the pink ones seem to have escaped unscathed for some reason. I picked a couple of the purple bell flowers, thanks to whoever identified them last week as campanula. Aren't they beautiful?
I really love the delicate chive flowers, and can't resist picking them. We also have a nice big pot of them which I'm using for cooking. The other two cuttings are random. We have a large bush with tiny little white flowers tinged with lilac… everyday it is awash with buzzing bees. The tiny pink flower is most likely a weed, but has such a sweet scent.
The fabric in the background is a Liberty print called pepper. I'm working on a new hand-pieced quilt and will share that here soon.
