Found in my garden

Walking into the garden to feed the hens and the wild birds, there was so much to enjoy and delight, from miniature crocus in flower in 'the plum patch', to emerging cowslip leaves around the 'Comice' pear. And then, seeing how near to flowering are all the bulbs newly planted last Autumn in one of the raised beds in the courtyard pottager, I spotted this delicate skeletonised ivy leaf lying between the spears of tulip. How lovely to translate it into a delicate machine embroidery, I thought, and brought it indoors where it now lies pressed between pages of my garden journal.
