there is a season

and it is turning.
i feel a chill.
when india said a presence spoke
their piece in the house
first chill on my skin.
excitement.
and now, work
and play.
soon winter will lock in.
the furnace will grumble
and hoot.
soup will be necessary
but for now
transition.

V- as you know being a metal and wood person I don't get into fabric or paper much - but I am really intrigued by indigo - I just love the idea that such lush green can produce such deep lush indigo. I really need to find indigo plants and encourage Fiona and Ken and Noela to do indigo stuff. Go well as you transition into autumn. B

indigo and nice bone folder
always a good combination...
those i rubbed into my apron
got darker on the journey south
think
the greener fresher ones
worked a whole lot better than their yellowing cousins

i, same as my experience. but the red tips on the yellow started out so lovely!
