Purple Myrtle Tree – yarnstorm for Mothers Day

Once again the “Purple Myrtle” tree was the topic of discussion in our household and the best way to stop off for a visit. Secret agents from the  Knitting Group Birstall had been out again and yarnstormed especially for Mothers Day (10th March 2013 in UK) placing flowers in trees and on sticks for passers by to “pick”.
There have been comments in the press recently discussing the act of yarn storming and if there are any benefits. I rather like it as it always makes me smile which surely, has to be a good reaction.

I’ll blog about the rest of the trip another time.
