Today’s theme by Postcard from Gibraltar for the Friday Photo Challenge is Tall …
The first thought that came o my head is of course my Tall Year Square etui box which I’m stitching at the moment. It’s a design by Betsy Morgan and I’m about half way through having completed Spring and Summer sides. Although it’s called Tall Year Square, it’s really pretty small!
I think this was part of the West Bay2Bay walk, Grassington to the Cumbrian Coast, 100 miles walk. The cow parsley and the meadow sweet were very tall, unfortuanetly so were the nettles! This is my walking buddy 🙂
Echinacea with a touch of twining bindweed! I bought an echinacea (cone flower) last week as none of mine seem to have survived either the transplanting or the winter. I’m just waiting for a drop or two of rain so I can dig a hole!
My tall chest of drawers, well it’s not that tall as it fits neatly under the table. It was originally from Ikea, I painted it and wrote on the drawer fronts with a silver marker pen. The drawer knobs are old wooden cotton reels. I really must put a blob of glue on the orange thread as it keeps unwinding around my sewing room
This is a beautiful garden at a house up near Darlington called Thornton Hall, my WI visited a couple of years ago. I’ve been trying to return ever since but it’s only open a few weekends a year and life just seems to get in the way! This white border is stunning with it’s tall spires of delphiniums and lupins.
