California Redwood with Poppies

California Redwoods are the tallest living things on our planet, growing to more than 350 feet tall. They grow along the Coast from our northern border to the Big Sur area. Redwoods have been around for thousands of years with the oldest verifiable tree ringing in at just 2,200 years.

Chris, from Petaluma, CA, sent in a postcard of just such a towering tree with California poppies in the foreground.

Chris whipped the edge of her postcard and sewed on rug tape. She left one end of the tape open and inserted 4 inches of a chopstick to use as a hanging option. In addition, she also added a small piece of wire as another way to hang this tiny piece of fiber art.
