The threat of near-frosty temperatures on our overnight made me a little nostalgic. I'm not quite ready for the cold. We only just got over the scorching hot and now... 36? Really?
It's only temporary, our temps are supposed to be back in the normal early-fall range again for the rest of the week but regardless, the threat of frost was enough to make me want to clutch a little tighter the days of gathering leaves and twigs, barefoot mornings in dewy grass, and the dyepot humming.
This rainbow represents a full year's worth of gathering; leaves, bark, mushrooms from last fall, kitchen scraps, walnuts from Illinois, and more. I tend to hoard my natural colors, only pulling them out when I have a special project to work on.
Though I do think perhaps I could hang them on the wall, I like them so much.
Hope your week starts off beautifully.
