Weekend

Saturday there was a cruise on a catamaran in Saco Bay (Southern Maine). My sister and her husband from Delaware came up to visit and my sister in Saco chartered this boat ride. Different for me – I don’t spend much time on the water. It was very calm, no wind at all for sailing. But we saw the Wood Island lighthouse, porpoises, and a stream of monarch butterflies on their migration journey.

Then Sunday was harvesting. So much food all at once. I just put most of it in the refrigerator, will figure out later how to use it.

My goldenrod dye results – looks yellower in real life.

      Frustrating! This morning I took a beautiful overdyed tea towel out of the goldenrod dyepot, olive green with dark leaf shapes from iron. The camera makes it look so drab, I can’t show it off. You’ll just have to imagine it!
