A Tall Order

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 favourite fell in the Lakes. Catbells seems  tall when you start walking but it’s actually pretty much a baby amongst the Lakeland fells. It has a big mountain view from the top though!

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.

About craftycreeky

I live in a busy market town in Yorkshire with my husband, kids, dogs and chickens. I love trying new crafts, rediscovering old ones, gardening, walking...anything creative really I started this blog after my New Year resolution worked so well. My resolution (the first one I've ever kept!) was to post a photograph of my garden on Facebook every day. My hope was that I would then see what was good in the garden and not just weeds and work, which was my tendency. The unexpected side-effect was that I have enjoyed many more hours in the garden. I am hoping that 'The Crafty Creek' will have the same effect. Happy creating!
