Summer Sights

I wonder if this would dye fabric?

Such an interesting flower

The 5th Beatle!

Wearing his beret!

Trees


 Everywhere I look, I see such beauty.
Sigh.

that flower is gorgeous. i bet that flower would give some color. i don't have many flowers in my yard but my sister is saving all her spent flowers for me. she puts them in a plastic bag and puts the bag in the freezer. India Flint talks about dyeing flowers that are frozen first in her book, Eco-Colour.

I actually mail my friend this beautiful great smelling yellow rose from my bush so she could get a whiff! She said she could smell it when she opened the mailbox! I bet it made a lot of postal workers happy along the way! Ha!
I really do need to *read* India's book!

Wow, wouldn't that be cool if the dye from that flower
(hibiscus?) would dye the cloth with that amazing gradation?

Yes I think it is a hibiscus!

...used for tea among other things!
But so far in my search, I have not seen these glorious colors :)
