Winter colour

Driving through Greerton the other day and my eye was caught by the colourful cherry trees along Chadwick Rd. Colourful in winter? I found a park, jumped out and took some photos …

The trees are covered in knitting and crochet (hope it is holding up after last night’s thunderstorms and rain) with the “yarn bombing” project designed to attract more people to the shopping centre.

A group of women have been stitching away since November and put their work on display at the beginning of this month – in the end about 30 knitters contributed to covers for 22 trees. Isn’t it gorgeous?
