Blooms are just busting out all over the place. The weather has been so pleasant and I was able to pick some flowers to decorate the house.
My collegues gave me the Royal Doulton ornament when I retired. It is a gift that keeps on giving. I planted the Freesia bulbs over 20 years ago in the banks at the back of the beach at the front of the island. Now they just spring up every year for everyone to enjoy and the perfume is beautiful as is that of the lavender.
I have been busy drawing flowers as well, inspired by that Japanese fabric. I think these would work a number of ways. Enlarged, to make an applique or stitched in wool or this size or smaller in regular stranded cotton. I have enclosed a free downloadable PDF. Download Japanese fabric designs - large flowers
