Here in North Carolina, we have a flowering and nigh indestructible plant called Carolina Jasmine. It can grow anywhere: abandoned lots, town dumps, superfund sites, etc. Despite its hardy nature, it is beautiful, with yellow flowers that give a deep fragrance. Unlike a lot of flowers around here, the G. sempervirens is native to this part of the world. I grow it on the front of my brick home, and it is slowly clambering to the roofline.
This hat is inspired by the plant: the Leaf Motif around the middle, the Vine Motif at the crown, and the small crocheted flowers added at the end.
