Double rainbow - view from the porch. You can see the driveway and the start of yellow leaves in the trees. No frost here yet, but I heard one farm got frosted already. I'm cooking up the last of the indigo from the dye garden.

Signs of life in our moonscape. I probably took this a month ago - the fireweed are seeding now.

Last night we had a big dye-fest at the fair for the sheep to shawl. The pinks and purples are brazilwood and logwood, but all the rest are locally grown. The sheep-to-shawl yarns are on the far side, to the right. I knew there wouldn't be much so had to bring in some other white yarns to play with. They are white no more! We're having another dye party in a few weeks - here's hoping someone else has white fiber.
