June 20

Quiet misty morning. Our youngest son will fly away today.


The days rush along so quickly. It's good to notice the small and wonderful changes.



Classic June


The un-mowed patch of grass on the corner was like a silvery-green sea this morning.


 

Happy morning

Our youngest son is coming home today to vist after a really long time.

This is a  very happy morning...:)

 


 


In the midst of major tidy-ing up, I came across these little odds and ends of wool yarn. They were dyed with cochineal, indigo, and coreopsis flowers.

 Summer in this old neighborhood. The next-door neighbor's porch is crumbling, The big elm tree had to be trimmed a bit more.

Beauty lives in both growth and decline.

Sunlight between storms. (Yes, the garage has seen better days.)

June Inspiration

II've been dyeing silk threads in colors inspired by the velvety shades of  petunias


Combinations of lac, logwood, madder and indigo


 The milkweed flowers have begun to bloom. The air is filled  with their heavy sweetmess. The tender, muted pinks seemed like the perfect color for some handspun wool yarn I've been saving.


Milkweed  (Asclepias syriaca)


Handspun wool yarn soaked overnight in alum.

Summer

Officially Summer today, though to me summer really begins on June 1st.


Ripe!


The squirrels and blackbirds keep knocking them down.

June morning

June morning


It's so fine to step outside barefoot,without a sweater, and get started right away. On most mornings,this means just wandering around in wonder and amazement.for awhile.


The backyard is not big, but the cherry tree doesn't seem to mind.



The blackbirds and squirrels .are ready to pounce!
