Bias Binding, A Thank You and Unknown Plant

15 May

The masks that I am now making need bias binding so I raided Mum’s haberdashery box again and found it full of treasure – of course – lots of different colours and widths, some brand new like this one!

A thank you card arrived today, such a beautiful, happy card with a painting by Carl Lawson entitled “The Boy With The Knot ” Thank you, Ti, it’s lovely.

Our walk often takes us along Church lane where the wild flowers abound. This one has grown so very  fast, now at least 3ft high but I don’t know its name. It looks like Angelica but that may be a fantasy!

    Definitely a Hog weed. You need to wait a bit to find out if it’s a Giant variety!

      Thank you. It has grown at a phenomenal rate so we will watch to see if it becomes a Giant! xx

    I would say that the plant is common hogweed which is actually edible. Hopefully not the giant kind…
    Giant hogweed gets to 4 to 5 metres tall, common hogweed is normally around 2 metres or less.
    Giant hogweed is dangerous. Do not touch it!!

      Thank you. I knew I could rely on you to help. Thank you for the warning too. The plants is growing incredibly quickly. WE hardly noticed it last time we went that way a few days ago and then suddenly there it was, nearly 6′ tall! I’ll let you know if it becomes a Giant! 🙂
