Black Lace Elderberry Sambucus nigra bush shrub berries attract birds

Beautiful Black Lace Elderberry Sambucus nigra with berries for the birds or made into elderberry wine or jam.  Lovely pink flathead queen annes lace like blooms with dark black lacey leaves. Super easy to grow, cold hardy to zones 3-8.  I took cuttings from a friends plant early spring, about 6 stems, 12 inches long, trimmed the lower leaves put one third of the stems into soil in a good sized pot about 12" tall and 10" wide is fine , stems spaced 3-4 inches apart and kept watered in early spring. The stems were about pencil width and that is all there is to it.  By the end of summer you will see new growth and then plant it into the spot in the garden to go into winter. My plant is about 2' tall and 2' wide now from last years cuttings and will get to 5' x 5' eventually , even taller if you let it get tall but I keep mine trimmed back to keep it bushy.

Spoonflower fabric grey and cream leaves curtains with a burlap texture handmade graphic design

Here's a popular grey and cream fabric from my spoonflower shop that I used to make curtains. It has a texture in the design that looks like burlap and I chose the cotton linen fabric. Here is the link: http://www.spoonflower.com/fabric/2872322-grey-cream-leaves-by-mypetalpress   I will put up a photo soon of the actual curtains.  Wallpaper and woven removable wallpaper decals with other colors are available too on the Spoonflower site. I have some tile decal designs I will put up soon too. Some really fun pressed flower fabric to use for so many sewing projects that I will also be posting soon. I made a cotton knit pencil skirt out of my multi pressed flower design that I love too. Here is the link to that fabric :  http://www.spoonflower.com/fabric/4990511-multi-flowers-by-mypetalpress
Thanks for stopping by to see what's going on.
