Earth  in Wool

..more dyepots this week.
working in the homestretch for my City and Guilds certificate (final project proposal, Yikes!),
reached the halfway point in washing this years fleece,
sorting new fabric as it begins to arrive,
made peach pie for Arnold and puppy obedience class with Dorothy Bea begins tonight.
Life is good.

Dye Garden

My Dyers broom (dyers greenwood), neglected but thriving.
This will yield a lovely yellow dye, using alum as a mordant.
..we'll wait until Fall for that task.

I haven't planted any annuals this year. I will, but I haven't yet.

My faithful perennials have clawed their way through their weedy surroundings and flower not because of but despite my attention. This, making me appreciate them all the more.
In the meantime I create a different kind of garden. One that I feel much more capable of tending.
