There's nothing left, all gone and run away, maybe you'll tarry for a while...



Hello,
just a few pics of a sweet visit to Trentham Gardens, Stoke on Trent 

The planting is absolutely fabulous








 The Echinacea in particular was so very beautiful.
 and onto a few things I have made over the past couple of weeks.
Free machine embroidered bunny on a 1902 legal Notice.
 Mail art...I included the feathers that I found hidden in the bottom of this 1916 envelope.
 Birdy in a tin

 Needlecases...







 Another Bunny on a vintage paper...
 and a purse...she's the 'Keeper of the buttons' :)

What a truly inspirational garden with some wonderful structural plants. I love the drifts of planting giving a very unstructured look. You makes are, as ever, just gorgeous. Lavinia with her little bow is my favourite and those adornments on her dress - just perfect. You put me to shame with the amount of work you make Viv. Jayne x
