Knapweed has chosen to grow in my garden and although a 'wild flower' I have come to realise it is a real favourite with insects, so have welcomed a swath of these rich purple flowers. A collage of Knapweed with golden grasses and lots of bees is my plan for these flowers.
Dyeing a river - These are both satins, one in pale blue the other silver-grey. I have dyed both as potential backgrounds for the floating maple leaves. There is the suggestion of leaves below the surface which will become far more obvious when other leaves are added in collage.
St Piran Anemones are a Cornish variety of a Mediterranean flower. They are grown in the Penberth Valley and I bought these in the Farmers' Market. As we approach midwinter I plan to create an olive grove full of scarlet flowers. Lots of saturated colour and sunshine.
