Daily Chore

Every day I got out
and pick the flowers
off this plant
it is a pineapple sage

I place them in a plastic bag
and then thye go back in the freezer
Until there are enough
to get this
very pink pink

Just solar dyed in
sitting in a window
for about a month

A long process...but worth it.

It is pretty, Velma and Roberta, though pink is not really my colour. But it is proof to those who think you can't get bright colours with natural dyes.

Jo, long it may be but there is not really any actual work involved. Flower picking takes about 5mins max as just a few flowers open each day. and putting thread flowers and water in a jar a sticking it on a windowsill hardly any time at all.
