Seed Head, Veg Trug and Knitting

After the mizzle this morning the Clematis seed heads were beautifully covered in little droplets.

Isn’t this just exquisite?

Our all-edibles trug is looking luscious! Various Lettuces, Thyme, Gives, Borage, Nasturtiums and tiny Violas, almost in flower, all ready for salads in the weeks to come.

I love the ferns underneath too, makes this a piece of art!

I have been knitting again – squares this time for the WildWorks’ production, “UnEarth” which will be in the Lost Gardens of Heligan in July.  I have taken a couple of paragraphs from their blog that explain both the story and the reason for the knitting.  See below the photo.

My first 4 squares, handed over today

“The show, which will be at The Lost Gardens of Heligan from 3rd to 22nd July, is a story of war, love, loss and hope. It explores what happens when war is over. It’s been co-commissioned by Heligan and 14-18 NOW, the UK’s arts programme for the First World War centenary. 100: UnEarth forms part of 14-18 NOW’s 2018 season marking 100 years since the Armistice.

During WWI people back home were asked to do many things, work in factories, work the land and knit. They were asked to knit items to send to the troops overseas. Women were also tasked with working in munition factories. We’ve combined the knitting and the munition historical references and will be creating a knitted torpedo – an artwork that will feature as a part of the show.”

Afterwards, the squares will be restitched into blankets.
