Here is Nellie's Garden Revisited by Homespun Samplar in all her prettiness!
I used mostly the called for fibers, substituting only a little bit. I made small changes in the two pots of flowers and substituting a made-up name "Nellie Garten" for the designer's name. I thought of putting my name in but I liked the name "Nellie" and then added "Garten" as that's German for "garden". I put in the date "1881" because that was the house number of a childhood home.
I am very happy with it but I now don't want to stitch alphabets for awhile!!!
Now onto my real "garten". Although we had lots of rain this last week, the plants are all parading in their glory. I have some amazing rose bushes full of blooms. I will give you a peek and show you more next week.
This next one was taken just before the heavy rain came. I had to push aside some branches as these were hidden inside the rose bush. Oh so pretty, like a painting! This one is "Strawberry Hill", a David Austin rose.
This next rose is not as prolific but oh so pretty - Double Delight both in its appearance of two colours, and the surprise of a delicious fragrance! Aromatherapy!
We have a huge trellis of this purple clematis that amazes us every year! Plants are often amazingly resilient and they try to be faithful every year!It's heading into Sunday evening so that's it for this post! Thank you for visiting and I hope you've enjoyed both the garden on linen and the garden in bloom! ;-)
What's blooming in your garden?
