The Japanese indigo, which I planted in the raised bed on the porch, well it just reseeds itself basically. Here it is again! I cut it 2 or three times a season for fresh leaf color using the salt method. ( you can google it, I put this one link here today) It yields more of a turquoise, and it is easy and fun. You may remember, I tend to use it as an overdyed method, just to mix it up a bit. Most of my regular indigo dyeing is done with purchased indigo powder. Mostly because it is available and I am not that focused on doing it from scratch. That may change, but we'll see.
I see some basil in there.
The crimson clover has begun to bloom.
The guys were here at the crack of dawn this morning. Still at it. Today is finish day, we hope. I'm bonkers.
I have gathered a few 3" puzzle pieces, bases for more Magic-Dots. An easy going dreaming of new beginnings to blur out the noise around me on this coolish May day before thunderstorms and ridiculously hot weather on the way.
The first thing I will do is trace around a quarter to make a circle.
