Summer means green for me, August is when the plants really seem to take off. We had a hot April, and a damp May and June, it's taken the plants a while to work out that this really is summer!
There's lots of inspiration for colour at this time of year. I love Sweet Peas, not just for their delicate colours but also for their beautiful scent.
The colours in these beauties, inspired this roving, unfortunately while I can capture colour, I can't work the same magic on scent!
For today, how about some Honeysuckle?
Or some Nasturtiums (which also taste rather nice in salads)?
Or a Sunflower?
Of course all this growth also means plenty of dye material, there's a few fresh braids of fibre that just need to dry so I can upload them in to the shop.
