Summer of Love - our lion for the Pride in Bournemouth

Quick note - Blooming Marvellous exhibtion is in Lighthouse, Poole brochure and their website on

We had lots of single flowers left over from the knitted garden which we had put to one side to decorate our lion for Bournemouth's Pride of Lions.

Here is is finished and looking rather magnificent!

He looks like a hippy so with colourful dreadlocks so we called him Summer of Love after the 1967 summer of love.

Inge, Lynne and Karen busy working out the design.
Assisted by Pauline Stanley and Khari Samuels aged 11.

We didn't have a plan when we started him but once the mane was in place he definitely took on a very hippy quality.

We gave him 3 base coats of green.

We have moved to Kinson Library

Just got the visitor numbers to the exhibition - 30,300 people have seen the knitted garden at Bournemouth Library!!!

Very sadly we took the work down from Bournemouth Library and it is now installed at Kinson Hub in their two beautiful exhibition windows. The Kinson Hub library is too small for us to do a major installation of it there so some of the garden is in other libraries in the borough.

It will be on show from June 9th to July 2nd.
