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.

Floating leaves - Having added a lot more dye-work to the river, I am now pinning on maple leaves to try different arrangements of floating leaves.
