August sunrise and madder


 


Early morning on the back porch . The sunrises seem different lately. The angle of the light is interesting.I guess this is always true, but I'm sure noticing it a lot these days.


Interesting morning sky


 


As usual lately, I'm still dyeing silk threads. Before dyeing the silk is exquisite.


 


Dyed with madder roots. I love the wide and surprising range of warm shades from madder.


 


The morning's work wound up.


 

Middle of August

 


 


 The mornings have been hazy, hot and humid. The air seems yellow.


  


Everything in the garden is growing and changing very fast.


I love the twisted curve of these morning glories.


 

Their leaves are beautiful too.


 


The robins and cardinals love the grapes!

Honey bees

A lot of honey bees have been visiting the garden lately. They love the Impatiens balfourii.


 


 An interestings thing is that they always arrive in the late afternoon and hang around until a little after sunset.


 


 The really interesting thing is that they don;t go inside the flowers like other bees. They grasp the tail end of the flower and seem to drink nectar from this part.
