le rainbow


The missus went to a natural dyeing workshop, wool in hand. The mustardy color on the right? Marigolds! The bright yellow on the left? Goldenrod! The pale green on the far left? Parsley! You should have seen the clothesline outside at the place where the workshop was---dozens of these colored strands blowing in the wind!

That must have been a beautiful colorful sight!

What is Mrs. P. going to make with the wool?

Maybe she will knit a bright little coat for Penny the beagle.

Those are some beautiful colors. Wish there was a photo of the wool drying in the wind.

What made those gorgeous oranges and reds in the middle?

And will Missus Potsblog be showing us her finished project? Please??

That's gorgeous, Gary. I'm told that honey made from goldenrod nectar is green. And smells terrible. The stuff is growing all over Simcoe at the moment. Would Maude like a bushel? ;-)
