Clematis

Clematis

Climbs trellises and walls with ease. “There are over 300 species with the Ranunculaceae -buttercup family.” This one is from my friend Joan’s garden. There’s a very popular sweater knitting pattern Ranunculus designed by Midori Hirose.

The black line near the center is a bit of bird seed that fell down from the feeder.

Threadbare Replacement

My recent post showing a threadbare linen dish towel, prompted my friend Joanne to unearth an identical Lupin printed towel she had tucked away in her stash. Approximately 15 years after her having given me the original! What a surprise to open the mail yesterday and find it folded in tissue paper, new with a tag. Thank you Joanne.
