Welcome buggy friends

I am still working on my scrappy sprout blocks, but I have started unpicking them for different reasons.
Once I had all the blocks laid out and looking right, it occurred to me that gardens need bugs.
Beneficial bees and insects.  Beautiful ladybird bugs.  So I added a few onto my leaves. 
 But as you can see some leaves also have fruit!  I love cherries!
Happy quilting Sue.

  1. You are becoming a master quilt gardener these days. Are you going to add drip irrigation perhaps? Love the ladybugs, but not the others so much. You should put a net over those cherries to keep the birds away. Can't wait to see the finish, unless it, like most good gardens, is a continual work in progress. Good luck!
