Petunias

Early in the summer, I planted several baskets to hang in our courtyard. Oddly, the house is situated so that the main living areas don't have a view out to the pretty valley we're located in, so the courtyard is a major gardening effort. With lots of color in the courtyard, I can still have a nice view!

There were pale yellow petunias in one basket, combined with something of a violet hue (whose name I forget), that together really glowed in the summer sun. Before the basket faded into an unruly mess, I took a photo. This is the weaving based on that photo:



The colors aren't right - the green should be greener, and the violet more red-violet, but this is the best I can do for now. After the woven pieces are cut off the loom and finished, I'll post another picture.
