I have made some important changes to the design of the garden. It wasn't sitting well with me that the six main posts represent six people and yet the posts within the design were all the same size. To make the design more in keeping with the concept I have changed the heights and widths of the posts so that they all vary in size. Neil at Crayonfire very kindly helped me bring my two illustrations together to make an updated image.
The search for the trees for The Red Thread garden has been vast. Dave Root had been searching across Europe looking for trees on my wish list and after many many photos from Dave's travels, research and conversations we have settled on two perfect trees from Deepdale Trees. Jamie and I revisited the nursery today to reserve two beautiful multi-stemmed Cornus controversa. Susan at Deepdale providing us with the best customer service as always!
