  1. The petals changed quite quickly but I managed to record them a couple of times as they turne Petals failingd...

    Petals almost over 

    I think their shapes are more interesting as they curl up and dry out. The colours have also gone darker but the tones have stayed. They will stay like this now so this is a good source from which to work an embroidery. Working directly from a source rather than a photograph of the source will make your work much more dynamic and unique.


  2. I have just been out doing a bit of weeding in the garden and picked up these fallen parrot tulip petals. It's tempting to look at flowers for inspiration only when they are at their best but they often do more intersting things as they start to fade and dry out and curl up.

    I shall keep an eye on them and post more photos to record their change. I might even record them in silk shading (as if I didn't have enough of that to do for the upcoming book!)
