I have been discharging lots of
dark hand dyes this summer...
I put a few up on the design wall and came
up with this composition that appeals to me...
I pieced it together today...
It is the size of a large lap quilt.
Close Up view of Discharge Work:
Now....what to put on the back?
Hollyhocks growing alongside the guest house:
They are nearly as tall as the house...
Summer would not be summer
without a patch of hollyhocks in the yard!
They are so simple to grow...
drought tolerant, I never water them, ever...
They re-seed themselves.
I have them mulched with hazelnut shells
so I never ever do any weeding in this bed.
Hollyhocks....the perfect flower
While I was taking photos of the flowers...
These two cuties kept peeping at me!
Their nest must be nearby and they don't
want me anywhere around it.
