victorian gardening party

although we got a new pile of snow over the weekend, my thoughts are turning to the garden. gardening shows are starting their new season on tv. on saturday i watched "gardening confidential" about the history of gardening and i was struck by the victorian gardening party. everyone in white clothes - gowns, hats and suits - which contrasted with the brilliant colours of the flowers. that was the inspiration for this skein of yarn.

We watch a documentary last night called The Botany of Desire (also a book by the same name by Michael Pollan, who wrote The Omnivore's Dilemma). I highly recommend it!!
