I have just completed the last page I need to do for our Round Robin pages swap, the theme for this one was Fertile. Initially I had several ideas of how it might be portrayed, ranging from depicting the rich red volcanic soil of this area which is renowned for its fertility, to something about the pesky rabbits that seem to be multiplying at a great rate and are beginning to inhabit my garden, to something at the cellular level – but in the end, I did something completely different. I love Poppies of all sorts, and grow some which self sow and multiply all over the garden, including the compost heap and my vegetable patch. I also love the huge, pepper pot like, seed pods that develop, full of thousands of tiny seeds and for a long time have wanted to use them somehow in my textile work. So here it is…..
I do hope that she likes it! Now I shall pack it up with all the other lovely pages, and post it to Mary on Norfolk Island.
