I have scratches up both arms from pruning the dead branches out from my elderly venerable lavender bush. I tend to have a slight love hate relationship with the plants in my garden. Some grow so well I have to keep digging them up and dividing them and some have to be carefully nurtured. I have just bought a woad plant and discovered it is a brassica which doesn't bode well as they don't tend to grow very well here.
But where would be be without our beloved plants, Grace today paid homage to textiles, I am paying homage to the plants we make our textiles and dyes from, we would have a sadly diminished range of textiles without them.
Still no pictures, I have found them all, but they don't want to be here yet, I will persevere.
