If you have been reading this blog for a while, you may remember the Erosion Bundle Project which led to a string of prayer flags in our back yard. You can follow the process from the chubby little bundles hanging in the tree to the prayer flags hanging in the very same tree here.
During these 4+ years, I have been posting updates several times as the bright colours have been softened by the sun and the edges frayed by the wind. I have been strangely attached to them and was planning to keep them there permanently. I thought they were becoming more and more beautiful.
(Those stitches were once black, and the white-ish fabric orange and purple)
When we were packing up the old house, they were still happily dancing in the wind
but one day I noticed that the trees were gone and the flags with them.
My reaction was something like this: What??? What!!!!! Oh Nooooooo.
I wish I had known so I could have moved them, but there you go. Why watching these frayed and dirty little scraps swaying in the wind gave me any joy at all I don’t know, but they did.
What I do know is that the chance of there being more raggedy flags swaying in my future is quite high. The trees may not be there anymore, but I’m sure I’ll find a way to dress the new house with some fabulously eroding scraps.
Thanks for stopping by!
