What a beautiful surprise! So many flowers to enjoy this time of year...
Old roses by David Austin
OK not a flower, but fabulous architectural stems of the Horsetail, a living fossil. Its also called scouring-rush because its rough stem (due to tiny silcate deposits) makes a good scrubber for pots and pans.
I have always been an artist and with art quilts I have found a way to combine my two loves of painting and textiles.
