I've loved this project from the moment I read about it over on Poppytalk while we were still deep in winter.

The cherry tree at the Historic Joy Kogawa House wrapped in a wooly hug and strung with soft cherry blossoms knit and crocheted by volunteers over the cold winter months.

A yarn bombing project organized by Vancouver-based knit graffiti artists Mandy Moore and Leanne Prain and embraced by the community.

Don't you wish all graffiti was this soft... and pretty?
