Untidy garden and stitching

Bit of a gap since the last post, but there has been some success this year in posting more frequently!
Still in the garden, ours is not a tidy one but the excuse is a concern for wildlife. Quite a few fallen apples were left lying and blackbirds and squirrels have been enjoying them. Mysterious things are beginning to grow - possibly weeds, we are just letting it all happen this season as we don't know what is there. A nice informal leaf mulch gives the baby plants some shelter, and some texture in the background to set off the yellow polyanthus.
And here's a piece of informal, untidy stitching to go with it, which looks better in the photo than in reality. It needs more stitching, then i might try cutting it up for postcards.

I like the gold/solver aspects to the work. I think it really helps to add another layer.
