I knew I wanted to add a few more things to my wonky garden. I was thinking butterflies, but as I looked through quilt books to get inspiration. I saw some cute little birds and a memory from my childhood came to me. I remembered the song, In the Leafy Treetops, that we used to sing in primary.
As a child I got the first verse correct about the birds singing good morning.
But I totally messed up the second verse and thought is said that the flowers were naughty instead of nodding. Didn’t figure that one out until I was a primary leader.
Since my flowers are wonky they can nod or be naughty and fit right in with the singing birds. Thanks to this fun memory I now have a few more ideas to implement in my garden. Looking forward to seeing how they develop.
I can't wait until your lovely garden is finished so you can show it all off! Love the birdies!!
Can't wait to see more!
It looks like it's going to be a bright happy quilt.
Cute story to go with a very cute quilt. I sang that song to my children, and now I sing it all the time to my grandchildren. A classic for every generation.
Love those additions to your garden.
Sweet birds with a sweet story Em!
These colors are so refreshing since it's the dead of
winter. Kind of cheers me up!
