Royal Leeks.....

mysteriously mixed in with my pocket
change of quarters and dimes...

was a British pound


bearing the symbol of a leek in a coronet

one of the symbols of Wales


edge inscription: PLEIDIOL WYF I'M GWLAD

"True am I to my country"


makes you think twice before
chopping some royal leeks up for soup...


it's just embroidery, have fun with it!

Would love it if coins magically appeared in my pocket! With or without the leeks... Happy Monday!

I'm always amazed what a strange language Welsh is!! Totally forgot about the leeks, which I love by the way. And of course such beautiful work as always!!
