Fresh flowers

More or less fresh – I think I made them in the 1980s. These four little embroidered pictures reappeared recently when I visited my sister. I had totally forgotten about them.

Nylon flowers

Back in the 1980s these flowers were very popular in Germany. I don’t know if this was also in the case in other countries but you can find them on the internet even nowadays. I made lots of them, mainly for colleagues, and these are the only ones I kept. But I have a couple of supplies left which will be used in an experimental way.

Flower Power

Another visit to the Botanical Gardens yesterday and a great batch of new shots –

 

The unusual blue-green one is a jade vine which is currently blooming in the greenhouse. Hover over the pictures for the other names.

Hemerocallis lily
