There’s a great piece of music by Billy Mayerl called Wisteria, it’s a perfect depiction in sound of this fantastic plant – it’s just coming into bloom, lilac sprays all over and utterly glorious in the sunshine. It’s also very heavy and quite rapidly destroying the trellis that’s supposed to be supporting it – more the other way round now.

Not sure what to do with it, can’t possibly cut it down, it’s far too beautiful and a real centrepiece to the garden.

June (well, May) is busting out all over, including the slugs. Copper tape and wool pellets are not working, having some success with crushed eggshells however, courtesy of a mammoth baking session the other day. They have to be crushed else Clifford (TBRD) pinches them to eat. He’s not too bright.


Another project or two

Nasty grey no more!

Nasty grey no more!

Here are some of the latest dyeing photos – dyeing started last year with an unfortunately snot coloured scarf, it’s now a slightly more attractive green but I still can’t bring myself to wear it due to the memory of its former state. One for the dressing up basket I suspect. Anyway – nasty grey potholders are now transformed with natural dyes, the turmeric in the middle is fabulously sunny.
