Posting from Little Rock this afternoon!
I'm visiting my mom, and instead of sewing, I found a different pin cushion here.
The pin cushion flower. A perennial which is in full bloom in Mom's backyard now!
Having time now to browse the internet....books on art and gardening. These are now coming my way! (from Alibris)
Mary Woodin's "Painted Garden" (2003) is full of watercolor sketches of an English garden....no way could I resist!
This charming book from 1911 was featured in a post by Karen of the CORNFLOWER blog. I have never sucessfully grown domestic sweetpeas...it is too hot here I think ( though we do have a wild, fushia-colored variety in our roadside ditches in May). I once had Laura Ashley wallpaper with a sweetpea border.
