It's all about color...
Overnight, my Weeping Purple Beech
came to life. Leaf buds that were copper,
opened up to a fantastic, rich, burnt red.
My color inspiration for
my new Punch Needle design...
My Meadow Rue is in full bloom...
this variety is called "Black Stockings",
because the blooms are
on tall, very dark (black) stems.
Almost sounds scandalous !!
Black Stockings ??
Who comes up with these names !
Lovely, rich Valdani shades
in Jewel tones.
When I sat down and sketched out this design,
I had plans for something entirely different.
Took a stroll through the garden and
went back in, to continue working...
Inspired by the colors I saw in the gardens...
this came to life. I'm loving the deep colors.
Take time today
to notice the small things...
