It’s been raining heavily most of the day. A solemn feeling.
Yesterday I walked. And took these photos of weathered wood (decorated) and wild turkeys.
And I was finally able to take a photo that gives an approximation of the darker goldenrod dyed cloth. It’s a beautiful olive green with dark markings. The cloth is a raggedy tea towel that I’d tried to dye previously. I don’t remember when this initial dyeing happened or what plants I was using. Only faint markings of leaves were showing up, so I figured it would be good to give it another session in the pot. I’m really happy with how it turned out. I added some iron-vinegar potion to the dyebath, a technique I learned from India Flint.
We’re going to the Common Ground Fair this weekend. It’s a big event around here that has been canceled for the past two years. I’m a little leery of going due to Covid contagion amidst the crowds. But the fair is a real draw for us. There’s a lot to see and learn. And the weather looks improved.
