Paul Baker, Museum Manager, said “the museum garden is always such a pleasant place to be in the summer, the addition of the knitted flowers and bugs seemed perfect. We can’t wait to see our visitors’ faces as they explore the garden and discover the beautiful knitted artwork nestled among the blossoming garden.”
