Tuesday was the July wild flower walk at Westonbirt. The guides show you around and sometimes pick common flowers to look at closely and show you how to identify them. This time I collected up the picked specimens so the bunch in the jug, bought home to draw, wasn't picked by me but the experts so nothing rare! However there are different types of soils and habitats within Westonbirt so a huge variety of plants to learn about.
Hairy bell flower, St John's wort and bush vetch here.
I have started a new stitched piece inspired by sycamore keys scattered on our local footpath.
Tiny Y Y Ys- all over the path.( fly stitch and question marks?) Away for a holiday now, will post a few pics on instagram- also louisemaywatson.
