October is finally here! Leaves are starting to change and there is a crispness to the air. I am starting to feel alive again, after a long hot summer. The walnuts are falling and soon I will be starting a dye stock made from the black walnuts for some natural wool dyeing.
My Hop Vines - yes..... these flower heads are what they use to make beer, are really plentiful this year. No beer brewing here yet. So far I just enjoy the fast creeping vines and flowers. I sometimes use the dried flower heads in fall arrangements.
Don't know about you, but Fall is my favorite time of year!
