Alice in Wonderland, Elizabeth in Dartmoor

In the deepest part of the shade in the middle of this pic will soon be a small fire pit so I can do eco printing next to my outdoor studio while I'm rusting a few feet away.  Can't wait.
My oakleaf hydrandea's blooms are turning from white to pink.  I have so few flowers in my yard that I get goosebumps looking at this plant.  Alice (variety)-my big oakleaf is doing well in this acidic soil under the walnut trees.  She survived nearly 3 years in a pot before I got her planted. 

One of these days I'll have to get some gardening advice from my dear friend Elizabeth.  Now SHE has a garden!  Can't ask now though as she is in England having the time of her life and coincidently is traveling with my rusted scarf again--this time in search of Sherlock (rather than Doc Martin).  Read all about it at her lovely blog 2ndhandpaper here.  Gorgeous pictures!  Thanks Elizabeth! 

Here's Alice in all her oakleafed glory cozying up to my studio lattice fence.

My helper

Darcy likes to get involved.  Actually she attacked the fabric as I spread it out because the wind was lifting it.  Despite having only one eye she is pretty dang quick with those claws.

First Crop

So glad to be back in studio.  Injured knee has prevented me from getting around on the uneven ground since before Memorial Day.  Feeling a little braver now.  These are soaking wet after hosing them down.  Expect a shift in color when they are washed and dried.  Seeing some pale yellow now which might not be clear in the photos.  
Water and tea--no vinegar this time around.
Both ends are pinned to clothesline here to prevent the wind from whipping the silk and ruining the hem.  Really gusty today, but oh so beautiful outdoors.
