So many temptations when the weather is so nice....but.... first I just had to take a walk and gather dye material. =-) The dogs searched and nosed around....but they couldn't tell the difference between oak galls and rocks!
But I found these.. the woods were full of acorns and oak galls this year...
I also picked lots of these....covered them with water and let them soak for a week... Don't they look cheery sitting in that pot...waiting for the hot water?
Boy oh boy did they stink when I lifted the top of the crock pot this weekend.
I also decided to try some poke berries. They stain the ground around them purple and when the birds eat them...well, the purple poopz do a number on your car paint. They are the most gorgeous color...dark and inviting....but poisonous. I love the fushia colored stems.
