Mind Map of Bloom

Some time ago the Brunel Broderers went to look around the Gardens Gallery in Cheltenham for our exhibition in September. Lovely exhibition space but I realised that I couldn't hang my flowers as I wanted them. I decided I would revisit our theme of 'Bloom' and began doodling, daydreaming in my sketchbook. I made a thread mind map. 

Thinking about the words of J. Krishnamurti from ' The Awakening  of Intelligence', " To reach the unconscious you have to have an action which doesn't  directly appeal to the conscious,' I realised that Bloom could be an Ocean bloom. 

Hurrah. I was on my way.

Poppies in the garden

These photos of brilliant red poppies were taken in Linda's garden. These, like all, are delicate and striking. Spot the hover fly enjoying the bounty!

It seems there are many more poppies around this year in hedgerows, gardens and fields. They are notable here in Gloucestershire and North Wiltshire. It appears from this link that this feeling may be true.
