I’ve started sketching for a new embroidery piece based on Himalayan Balsam.
These non-native (for these parts) flowers grow invasively around river beds and choke all other plants in their path.

I like them though, because they look like orchids in the wild. The flowers are open, ready for pollination.  Growing along by the river, a life source.
