Same and Different

Home from Australia for two weeks now and I realize that when I got back, some things had changed but others had remained the same.

Same sweet sheep….

sheep 2

sheep 3

But the Mulberry Tree has definitely changed color….

Same vigilant llama…

But the persimmon tree has lost its leaves….

A new gate and a new door….

The free-range guineas are still hanging out with the sheep….

But the yard has really greened up….

The chickens are still laying eggs (but will be called “chooks” from now on)

Some of my new Australian friends told me that gum tree (eucalyptus) leaves do not need a mordant when used for natural dyeing so I think it is time to give them another try that way. These are calling me to pick them….

It’s good to be home…….
