I think these guys are going to look fantastic on my table at Renegade!
My favorite flowers in the back of our house are getting devoured by Winter Moth larvae. The trees are also, but I don’t take that so personally. The tree peony managed a few pathetic blossoms and now, my favorite rose, Abraham Darby, it looking completely mutilated. Bummer.
I have never figured out how to successfully photograph red-on-red. These photos all show this tiki with a much more orange tone than he is in life. The main red background color is a dark red- not at all a Coke red.
It has been a long while and I’m back in the mood for tikis. I think I made the last one in January 2008.
I am thinking that I will make the tiki pattern this summer. I’ve tried 3 different faces- I will have to decide which one I like best.
It is fun to be working on wool applique after making all the little fox clothes. Mixing it up keeps it all fun for me.
A view from the top-
And the garden is reaching explosion level! I love poppies-
and the allium-
Both the poppies and the allium have self-seeded into all kinds of wonderful places around the garden. And this is just the beginning of the season!
