Playing around with new ideas (again!!) and waiting for my earthy coloured painted textile piece to dry, I discovered my first cornflower bloom in the backyard garden.
Ever since I was a little girl I loved sweet peas and sweet williams with their vibrant pink and mauve buds. Ever since I was a big girl I have loved cornflowers – and any other flower with awesome (to use a cool young ‘un’s term) deep blue petals.
This springtime I planted both these luscious plants in my backyard garden – just near the boring clothesline. Collecting the dry laundry today I spotted my first cornflower bloom and wanted to share it with you. I included a photo too so that you can see that our cat (Samera) was also intrigued by something new in the garden of bouquets!
Mmmmmmn – this is triggering a desire to include this colour into my next textile art piece. I don’t think I can leave this idea alone – time to go now and let this thought simmer.
