In my experience of working as a gardener for nearly 50 years, eall plants no matter if they are wild weeds or rare cultivars care about where they put down their roots and thrive with good light, soil and water!

oh I hadn't heard Simon & Garfunkel's April Come She Will' for such a long time... your title for this post took me there https://youtu.be/PYD-DIggB2k April come she will When streams are ripe and swelled with rain; May, she will stay, Resting in my arms again. June, she'll change her tune, In restless walks she'll prowl the night; July, she will fly And give no warning to her flight. August, die she must, The autumn winds blow chilly and cold; September I'll remember A love once new has now grown old.

I associate the blue throat chakra with my turquoise nagual stone that I carved from a chunk of turquoise my brother found for me in New Mexico https://itscrowtime.files.wordpress.com/2016/03/turquoisebluecatweb.png I carved it in 2004, the year I got throat cancer, a particularly poignant piece, like carving a piece of the sky...

ah she mentioned that these lines were an echo, a riff from some memory, here it is a short poem by WB Yeats; Old Tom Again Things out of perfection sail, And all their swelling canvas wear, Nor shall the self-begotten fail Though fantastic men suppose Building-yard and stormy shore, Winding-sheet and swaddling - clothes.

Love your abstract watercolours and how they are informing your stitching, they fit with this quote in 'A Natural Curiosity' by Margaret Drabble (p124-5)- "All things out of abstraction sail, And all their swelling canvas wear."
