I have spent most of the past week frantically sewing binding onto pieces of work needed for a talk and exhibitions. Some of them have needed this for about a year. I thought I would share some images of my favorite flower. At the moment the roadside verges have not been cut back. I know this limits your vision as a driver but I just love the cow parsley gently moving in the wind.
This is my lane looking right from the house.
A close up of cow parsley.I do keep wondering what would happen if I bundle it up with fabric. One way to find out...
I love the structure which inspires my work
"A flower of childhood
we’d pass days in your haze
of intricate white
muddled into the long grass
green to white to green;
young in years but rich in time
lost in play and thick as thieves
in your wooded world
you’d nod to the fields beyond".
This was taken last year but it is one of my favorite images.
