dyed and planted

this piece of cotton sheeting dyed beautifully. 
there is a lot of peach in this.
and bark
i don't know how to show how beautiful this cloth is. my photos are so poor.
last day at bittersweet this year. i will miss the work, the kids faces when they see the building they've worked on, the seeds planted, now almost harvestable, the piglets grown.
another greenhouse erected.

It's so hard to really capture with a camera the colors of materials dyed with plants. I do think they are beautiful photos though and can imagine...

the greenhouse, hoophouse, is the SAME as the
one here, but this one is just the bones of it.

really beautiful cloth!

yes!! india, they are such a contrast to the rest, yet work perfectly.
the hoop house (like that word) means you can extend the season. i might just try this and then can eat greens in winter AND keep indigo going!

i love how i am always the last to the party!
i was thinking that the peachy fabric strikes a chord with me about timelessness. it seems old, yet...very present.
regardless of your perceptions of the photo, the beauty of it came through just fine on this end.

and i would miss those things too.

This turned out so beautiful...Brown! I see a little bird perched in the white branches (#3). Perhaps he is contemplating the brown.
