Today we went to visit Nanna Gibb who’s garden is pretty inhospitable to any form of wildlife. Shes in her 80’s now and over the years the garden has been slabbed,paved and chipped and the plants dug up so it was a beautiful sight to look out the kitchen window to see these fox gloves flourishing. A lot of weeds we’re making their way up through the chips and in the gaps of the slabs. I wonder how long it would take for the garden to be green again if we just left it to grow?
A number of bees were buzzing around the flowers and looking closer we saw this ladybird hidden in the leaves.

Today’s embroidery is inspired by the foxgloves:
I had the song ‘Weeds’ by Pulp in my head for the rest of the day, I think I might have to put together a Nature inspired playlist as one of my activities!
