I unrolled the St. Joan's Wort silk bundle from a few weeks ago. As the leaves and flowers of this plant are perforated -- you can see the perforations when you hold them up to the light -- it makes perfect sense somehow that the cloth is covered with tiny little dots. Wonders never cease.
Brewing in the dye-pot is this morning's harvest of bindweed, Convolvulus arvensis. More wonders -- last year's outcome is here.
I'm intrigued by the light and dark values in a plant grouping on our patio. As with cloth, changing a color photo to black and white is a way to see if the light and dark components are balanced to one's liking. The size and shape of the leaves and flowers stand out more, too -- this reminds me of old garden books and magazines.
I'm hoping for no rain this afternoon or tomorrow night but I'm looking for our rain ponchos. We have baseball and concert tickets. Rain is predicted for both!
