This lovely sunflower was 'snapped' by me earlier this year on a visit to my Mum in Kakanui.
Mum was also a florist and was often called upon to throw a bunch together for some reason or other. I was an endless source of despair and hilarity to her for my efforts of 'throwing a bunch together' was literally just that!
This wee fella is made by Mum (Beth) - she made the felt and spun the wool and then put him together. She has also left a legacy of patchwork blankets, all different colours and stitches to envelop and comfort her grandchildren.
Such a dear wee girl, and already a gardener! Miss you, Mum.
