This year for my mum's bday I surprised her with an embroidery of her front garden. I learned a lot while doing it, and am really happy with how it turned out! She is thinking of moving house or building a new house so this will be a great way to remember the house and garden.
rhododendrons, conifers, xmas lillies, among other plants I don't know the names of!
kowhai tree, hebe, poppies, roses, lavender, fern, foxglove, and blossoming plum tree
the whole thing, in a wooden frame
the photo i worked off.
