Driving through the suburb of Greerton in my home town of Tauranga the other day and my eye was caught by the colourful cherry trees along Chadwick Rd.
Colourful in winter? I found a park, jumped out and took some photos …
The trees are covered in knitting and crochet with the ”yarn bombing” project designed to attract more people to the shopping centre.
A group of women have been stitching away since November and put their work on display at the beginning of July – in the end about 30 knitters contributed to covers for 22 trees. Isn’t it gorgeous?
