Today's Embroidery

I found this old work of mine when looking for something else.

I had a complicated plan for this one, beginning with the idea of turning the roles of spectators and flowers at flower shows and ending with the idea of humans as potted plants, pestered by insect-like military planes. But it didn't work out quite right, because I used flea-market-bought floss which stained the linen when I washed the embroidery. Hence the yellow shades in the background. I then added more dabs of yellow and sorta gave up.
