I forgot about the carrots in the garden! Until this morning, that is. Their seed was for assorted colors and I was hoping to get mostly purple for dyeing cloth. I don't know if these would be considered purple or what, but they're not orange. Now I need to decide whether to eat them or dye with them as I intended. The weather has been unseasonably warm so the pansies and violets started blooming again -- and notice the nice green woad foliage in the carrot photo. Our dogs are shedding heavily, as well. Signs of the times.
Yesterday I arranged greens from around the yard, dried stems from the lunaria garden, and bittersweet vines from Thanksgiving in an outdoor planter. I want to use lunaria inside, too, maybe tuck little sprigs into tiny silver vases. I am crazy about this plant, fresh and dried. I know it's common in some areas, but not here.
Thanks for visiting and happy weekending. xo
