Hops, bind weed (morning glory) and blackberries growing
And the grape,
But there are treasures
Harvested from the side garden tonight. There will be more cherry tomatoes to pick tomorrow in the hoop house.
All but the top fabrics were dyed with plants from my garden except the top one, the red cabbage. The rest are (descending) onion skin, marigold, hops, apple leaves and hazelnut leaves. The colors are close but not quite true.
And there is inspiration:
I think I will sew much of my green fabric together to make a blanket.
And it will have butterflies.
And there is room to dance:
This song just makes me smile.

(For this particular video I found that it's better to turn the sound down just a bit.)
"Is there something in our ancestor's environment that matches our peak hearing human sensitivity...Birdsong....Why would our ears possibly have evolved so that we could walk in the direction of faint birdsong? Birdsong is the primary indicator of habitats prosperous to humans. Isn't that amazing?" Gordon Hempton
Hello birds, I'm so very glad you come to my garden...
