just a little garden cloth The purple basil didn't do well, munched and molded. But it did leave a bit of color on silk. I think August will be a bit wordless. In the garden. Learning. I am very confused about so many things.
Mold makes that beautiful blue????!! Was it from being wet, wrapped around the plant and tin? I’ve never had any pretty colors from mold. Of course, I was never dying when I got mold. It was only the unintentional dampness kind.
Moldy purple basil, or some sort of fungus on the plant stem, not sure really. I’m a wondering dabbler.
Melancholy, confused and unmotivated here on Canada’s east coast but always happy to read your posts and see what photos you have for us today. Recharge and enjoy August!
You call it a Garden Cloth. I think it’s a Cloth Garden, too…
That was a swell word play.
I love you jude.
love helps… backatcha
Confused, yes I think that is the new normal. The garden is such a good place to just be….
right now, stabilizing, because everywhere I turn there is growth.
I just found out that basil and sage do not like to be near each other. I removed my sage near my basil and both are doing much better. Also, my basil likes full sun most of the day and only morning waters, and hates her leaves wet.
I didn’t know that….
whatever we focus on, seems to get bigger. think i’ll consider this cloth for a while. your photos always say so much. a little cloth dye each day sounds peaceful and productive.
It looks so at home there.
Confusion is like tangled threads; it will get sorted out.
Maybe I will sit with the thread nest, will make it seem ok.
Maybe confusion is pre- transition apprehension. I can understand the mostly wordless part. And this summer has been nasty with humidity.
I think you are exactly right.
And this summer…
Sometimes just a photo is enough. Digging this lovely cloth! August always seems like some turning point to me. I’m trying to rid and begin different areas. Dishing apps out the door, trying new on to bring more happiness and beauty, with less air time. Trading a blog into a newsletter. You’ve had big, big news.👶 Seems your summer went so fast with a remodel. Then developing this place for us. And the world went into a damn tizzy. I hope you go rest your mind, renew your spirit and spread your wings a bit just for yourself. I’ll just re-watch some of your YouTube..needed one today.🤗🕉️💖🌱☯️
It’s possible I am just getting old.🙃
Well, aren’t we all confused these days? There are so many senseless things going on it’s hard to know where to start. It’s like ” Wait, what? that surely can’t be right!”
Ha! Exactly. Wait, what? I need a tee shirt.
I thought I was the only one confused, melancholy and unmotivated to do. I am, but I don’t. It must be August.
Yeah, August, feels like back to school blues.
The way this one Becomes the path, yeah. So lovely.
There really is a luxury in embracing whatever may come, like confusion. It can be hard to fake it.
Yeah, I needed a path.
Good thing I am retired.
Confused here, too… better than pretending to know it all, me thinks. Too bad about the basil, but always there is the dye pot 🙂
Pretending has melted away. Maybe heat…🥵
Got lots of the green kind tho… and yes, alk the garden fails live on.
Here too – confused, sad distressed and deeply anxious.
Need for Hope in future for Humanity. Thanks for your soothing writing
Thanks for visiting.
ever! each day
always every single day!
Confusing times, best place is in the garden………
Sure helps my sense of acceptance…
A little sad.
I mostly stay home becuz when I go out, I get even more melancholy, confused, and mad.
Cats, cloth & cultivating.
Love the basil cloth! 💜
Maybe I’m home too much. Not sure about anything.
A little cloth dye each day in august I think. Small dyeing.
I feel the same
I like your results, especially where the purples and blues meet. Confusion, forgetfulness, wondering why and what to do… plenty of that here too.
The blues came from the moldy part.
Totally out of it.
Thats all purple basil coloring? So pretty!
the silk was dipped in the walnut brew for a moment, before wrapping it around a tin can with the remains of the plant folded inside.
Purple basil colour….that looks lovely! The whole effect looks so attractive.
“August will be a bit wordless”..oh I like that..may I borrow that phrase for a few things that can at time feel kind of wordless:):)
A bit wordless keeps it open ended…😎
Thank you for sharing your
deep feelings, your words in wiches 1 can reconize myself. Thank you.
To be human is also that: to be confuse. Thank you.
Have a good time of full summer, without words …
Yes, I feel very human….
Me Too – confused
maybe it’s the new normal.
😁My immediate gut reaction to this was It’s my old/always normal.😕🙃🤪🤣
