Brian the Builder is here

Granny's Bonnet
My garden has become a disaster area.  The builders have definitely arrived. Scaffolding plonked on borders. Honeysuckle chopped down - I had just managed to get it to grow over the garden wall and down the other side.

They are dealing with a chalk wall and since it has rained for nearly a week now, there is a grey trail of trodden in chalk pretty much everywhere. Bless their hearts, they are trying so hard to minimise the mess.  And hey, it can all be cleaned up and re-planted.  Right now I'm trying to focus on the survivors.  Granny's bonnet.  Doesn't come up true from seed, so you don't know what you'll get.

A while ago I had a try at replicating it in knit.  Strange, but interesting.
