Dressed up!

By Chinga
There is a garden in Portimao (south Portugal) that has had all the trees "dressed up" in colourful crochet and tricot, contributions from all the retired senior locals... All trees look so good as a "welcome to Spring"... They have been "dressed" since March 2014 and I just got to see it in October. The effect is still rather beautiful... GrinGrin
A great idea from the Local Authorities to get the community working together and revamp a garden that needed colour!

That's a very colorful dress - intricate work on each piece, showcasing the patience and hardwork put in by those who contributed.. A fine and informative capture!

What a wonderful idea. It makes for such a vibrant display not to mention the protection given to the trees. Lovely.

How lovely these are Isabel, I saw it once , I think they call it Yarn Bombing. I saw it in Bewdley gardens. I think I still have to shot somewhere!

I would want to pinch that in V 6 too
