The weather feels milder these days, so it looks like the season is starting to change – but it is still warm and sunny.
Some of my flowers were overblown, but new ones started to bloom.
And the biggest surprise for me – oriental poppy… in mid September!
This is the first one that I managed to grow successfully. When I first planted poppy seeds a few years ago, I actually weeded them out by mistake. There were two species of small plants growing, so I had to decide which ones were the poppies, but I was wrong. The ones that were left were forget-me-nots – apparently the seeds of both plants were mixed for some reason.
This spring I decided to try again, but the small plants did not make it. So I decided to plant some more in May, hoping that they would grow better during the summer and may be bloom next year – but one of the new plants flowered now. Totally unexpected!
I added some more vintage items to our shop. They are mostly in black or white, with a touch of colour – both bohemian and elegant.
I am working on a new project – embroidered denim jacket.
I found this jacket in the thrift shop – I like the flattering fit and the good quality of the fabric, classic royal blue denim.
I cut out the embroideries from another second hand item – a pair of girls’ pants, and I thought they would be a perfect match for this design.
