A «gourmand» shirt

Too long abandoned at the far end of the wardrobe, this old shirt hangs on the branches of a mulberry in the garden to appreciate the softness of a gentle breeze. Time worn, I, lace it with a twill «gourmand» ribbon of red cherries to highlight the shirt’s red embroidery.

I tenderly embrace my wonderful grandmother who presented to me these hydrangeas with their jagged edges and pristine color. It is from her that I received my love of gardening, love of flowers and I thank her for this beautiful inheritance.

This is the best way to learn gardening - from the close ones. I also got it from grandma on the first stage - when I was a kid. On the second stage - as adult one - I asked a lot my mom :)

Hedrangea and shirt look very romantic together :)
