one day Good Morning. That's it, no fancy words. Just to say , the indigo has begun to grow like a weed here.
love that she has legs ! x
standing up is on my mind
Oh, I’m going to grow Indigo at my new house, I can’t wait! Would you say it’s happiest in full sun?
What other plants do you grow for dying?
And instead of good morning, I’ll say, G’Nite.
full sun, good soil.
mostly I use what grows around but I do grow madder, which is a long term thing, but have not dug for roots since I moved here. And have not worked with it much.
i once knew a retired occupational therapist that fired her gardener after he cut down her indigo tree. i had a recent bummer when our lawn bastards cut down my allspice tree of 5 years growth!
an allspice tree? where do you live?
On an island in middle of the pacific ocean that i vacationed to back in 1971 and am still living on.
I don’t think it gets warm enough here for indigo but the woad grows like mad. I love that tree, reminds me of a baobab. They both have legs! A wandering tree – how wonderful, or wanderful.
How did you get that semicircular shadow Jude?
You mean up top?
Ah, on the right hand side, I see now it IS a shadow
Good morning 🌞 🕊💙
Oh that’s the best and has me wondering! I am going to not harvest some of my indigo in batches, just grow a few for seed. I think that will work. Good morning!
Yeah, there is way too much growing here. It is actually a great plant just growing. It was a cold winter but so many seeds sprouted.
this feels like a magical bean stalk. a face peers out from the bottom corner.
like the beanstalk aspect…
The beast and the tree 🙂 Made me think of the CA Redwoods. How lovely to have a ‘useful weed’! xo
surprisingly a lot of weeds are.
anything that grows.
Plants and cloth .. that’s it .. simple ,slow , just how we like it 🐌..
It’s nice to wake up, isn’t it!? 🌄💚
Sure is. Yay.
It looks a lot like basil – my favorite herb 🌈
That reseeded also, but I grow it in the planter by the back door.
And good morning to you, your lovely cloths, and beauty-full indigo.
…and a heart felt “Good Morning” to you too!
Your work has opened up my world of seeing…
An indogo plant growing like that…wow!
It’s lovely to see stuff “just growing”
My indigo has come along also, from last years seed. Such a hardy plant. Now to learn to work with it. It makes me happy to grow it.
And the deer are not eating it!
Good morning, Jude! Love Indigo Promises.💙
I love just watching what comes from this earth.
a whole yaardscape full of self seeded indigo…you’ll have blue shins!
I think so, such a nice plant really.
Love these more exotic pieces
They become from dreams.
