I love pollarded trees.   It is something one rarely sees in the US.


I noticed a lot of these trees in London- they look like they have ornaments hanging from them.


And here is what I’ve been working on.  Trees on the mind.  I didn’t get much done on my travels.


This photo is from my walk yesterday.  Chilly flamingos!

  1. Glad to see you had such a wonderful time in London, although I must admit looking at the first picture in a previous posting, it looked like you must be in some exotic climate.

    I went to the V&A in December and had forgotten how vast it was. Could have spend the whole 4 days there but having only visited London once in the last 15 yrs, I just had to look at all the other art work I could cram in 4 days. A Londoner born and bred, it made me very very homesick and just thinking about now, makes me more so.

    The babies are looking good. Your creativity is boundless.

  2. I have been away from blogging for a while and have not checked in on you.I wish that I had because I would have met you in london if I had known that you were coming. I am glad that you found some inspiration here will keep reading from now on.

  3. I love that flamingo photo ! I had never heard of pollarded trees, I had to follow the link and now i feel very knowledgeable.

  4. Mimi: I am surprised you havn’t made felt emboridered capes for those poor Flamingo’s ! They do look cold. The trees are very interesting. Have never seen one before. and your babe’s are lovely too. Love the trees embroidered on them.

  5. The tree is called a London Plane. I have one outside my house and did not know what it was called. I hope this helps. Love your blog great inspiration.
