roses, ad nauseam
Well I'm no closer to finishing those socks but I did ply my yarn and dyed it and I can see that soon we are going to need to go the way of the chemical dyes and leave the koolaid behind. Yep, we all knew it would go this way and here it is. I'm such a color freak that I can't stand not having all the colors of the spectrum at my disposal. So there it is.
Even though the rain sucks and the gray clouds are thoroughly depressing there is one good thing about it: the photography gods are particularly kind to photographers when it is overcast outside. That said, I went nuts with the roses. The wind, however, was not kind and that's not good for macro photography so I had to cut some flowers from my garden and drag a heavy vase of flowers around my yard. And shoot at least 1 gig in about 30 minutes flat...
So we got these:
I love the way that the roses look like ballet tutus. These are all my favorite colors: pink,rose,green and a shot of turquoise and it amazes me that I got them all together in a natural setting (except the vintage turquoise bean pot is not out of the garden and natural, but we'll forget that).
Don't the delphiniums look so sweet with their green polka dots? If that stalk hadn't broken and turned downward I never would have known they were there...Well I'm sure you all have had enough of the roses for today.
Heading to the bath now (with my yarn dyeing book...) Maybe some knitting in bed!
