In the meantime

 At the moment I am busy dyeing scarves and weaving more pebble hangings for the christmas open at Weston quarry. In the meantime a few pictures of autumn colour from the garden. These photos haven't really picked up the colours properly.
Sorbus and winter jasmine

Rose hips and nameless shrub

Continus with paperbark maple in front

Cotinus, many of the fallen leaves are now in the dyepot


  1. love that last photo with the stick & terracotta pots what is the leaf?

  2. Thats Herb Robert, considered a week by most gardeners, its a member of the geranium family and is very pretty, the leaves will turn red and dye quite well. It has small pink flowers.

  3. Pretty "weed"! Thanks Debbie. A little beauty this morning is very much appreciated.

  4. We have a native plant in Texas with the common name "stork's bill" ... it bears a striking resemblance to the "weed" in your last picture, and I discovered it too is a member of the geranium clan.

    1. It could be the same plant it has a long stork's bill looking seedpod.
