October, 5pm




We had our first, hard frost last night, and today the milkweed pod burst open. I don't know if these events are related. The breeze then began its work of emptying out the little fluffy parachutes. Milkweed is my new favorite color. My winter wool rugs are following the rich, subtle color I see in them. Which is not to say I'm immune to the brilliance I see elsewhere.

Milkweed colors are absolutely beautiful! Cream and warm fawnish. I want to use them!

Yum! Isn't it amazing how something so rough on the outside, can produce such delicate wisps on the inside?

Gorgeous photos, wonderful inspiration.

Weave on!

Such lovely photos, such soft, hushed, tranquil colours; where I live colours are intense, lively and dazzling – what a contrast.

you captured them beautifully. we had one wander in to the studio on a breeze last week to say hello. i look forward to seeing the weavings inspired by their soft tones.

I'm happy if my pictures show even a part of how beautiful they are to me. Such a tough plant, but so shapely, and with a secret, flying away part. Oh!
