Last Friday I gathered up a collection of Hawthorn berries, twigs and leaves from the bottom of my garden

and set them aside to soak for a couple of days

then yesterday afternoon after I came home from helping to hang the

Changing Threads exhibition

(but more of that later in the week)

into my trusty (yes also a bit rusty) iron pot it all went

then today when I came back from more exhibition hanging into the brew went a number of bundles –

oh it so good to be back dyeing after a enforced break

and here is what is on my kitchen window sill at the moment

it’s perfume is as beautiful as it looks



  1. I’m looking forward to seeing just what those wonderful Hawthorn berries do for you Jo – It is one of the best and most important herbs for heart health! Could that pretty tone of pink be a Day Lilly? – They have such a beautiful fragrance! Such a soft warm colour too!
    Hugs, Suzy

    • Hi Suzy I think its a lilly that has a number of names including surprise, magic, naked lady and resurrection lilly – it is a nice surprise when they appear in the garden just like magic, they come up every year but as for the naked lady, I think she would be a bit sunburnt to be that pink! much love joxx

  2. the story unfolds – two things to anticipate. Your new bundles unwrapped and posted and the exhibition. Treasure.
