Ferns on a wall in the rain.
Violet, flowering in the most unlikely of places, under the step.
Tree of Life.

I hadn't realised that the Tree of Life textile was completed until two
of my friends asked to see the back of it and then it all fell into place
and the rest is history.
These works of 'art', both natural and manmade
have just come into being.
The plants are flowering, despite all the odds,
in the yard behind our gallery.
It was pouring with rain and there they were thriving,
in the poorest of conditions.
Nature is wonderful and lights up my world.
