Various

Photos of one of my favourite flowers, purple cone flower Echinacea they were planted in the public gardens a couple of years ago, and  seem to have gone from strength to strength; the colour palette of the background plants stretches from golden grass to silver, purple and orange....





The inky blackness of the Chelmer river, has little colour, pondweed smudges the edges, water lily leaves sway gently under the surface, and the new little fishes swim busily under the bridge where they are always to be found, under the great willow that has now grown its branches so long that they  dip down into the river and almost obscure it.



And lastly the colours that have been dyed recently...




Not forgetting the material from Cotton Patch, to be turned into place mats today....

  1. Lovely photos. I love the beautiful natural colours of your wool and the cabbage fabric is gorgeous!

    1. Hi Kath, yes it is pretty the cabbage material, I send off for material to Cotton Patch, bit pricey, but they have some good designs, Kaffe Fassett, Philip Jacobs etc, so I am having a retrospective moment with Fassett, the wool is being knitted up into his diamond shapes at the moment, which creates a lovely tangled mess of wool...
