A Day In The A Blue Mountains.

Thanks for visiting my blog. I welcome you to take your time and browse , visiting my bush garden and discovering the wonders of my city within a national park; Blue Mountains National Park. Via my blog you will travel with me through the successes, trials and tribulations of gardening on a bush block.

Day 180/366

Have you heard of yarn bombing?
It is the new 'urban art', an 'acceptable' form of graffiti. (But still illegal?)
Said to have originated in the Netherlands in 2004, yarn bombing, guerrilla knitting, yarn storming, or urban knitting, has since spread internationally.

I found this colourfully decorated tree across the street from my office in Surry Hills, Sydney. 

Yarn bombing does not only involve trees but any structure that it's possible to wrap in knitted, crocheted, or wrapped yarn.


  1. yes it's taking place here in England where I've heard it called guerilla knitting. SOme ladies covered a whole pier walkway, it looked fab! what a splash of colour.

    1. Kath I think a whole bus has also been covered in knitting!

  2. I've heard of it but never seen it done around here.

    1. I'm sure it's coming to a tree near you TT!
