Christmas Bells. Flower

When Beth challenged us to take pictures of our favorite Christmas decorations for this week’s You Capture challenge, I’ll admit that I was bummed. I already did a very detailed photo post of our Fire Tree (please go see it; I promise that it is awesome). I couldn’t figure out what I was going to photograph.

The botanical name for Yellow Bells is Bignoniaceae, Tecoma stans . It is also called the Yellow Elder or Trumpet Bush. Yellow Bells is an evergreen shrub that loves sun and heat. It can be grown …

So I am posting the pattern here for free on my blog. The Bellflower Infinity Scarf was made originally in Naturally Caron Joy! yarn, but can make it in any …
