Philippa Toon - Grape Hyacinth and Poppy Head

We have lived here for 8 years (since 1991), during which time I have had two children and looked after many others as a registered child-minder.

The inspiration for the poppy head and grape hyacinth came from the garden of our last house which was full of these flowers. The design was based on a book of drawings of garden plants.

It was nice to take part in something for the village which has involved working with other people. It has been a way of contributing to the village.
