Birthday snow

On Saturday I went by the dye garden and discovered that most things were pretty dead of frost, but a few things were still doing well. One was a bunch of pansies:
These guys were volunteers from flowers we didn't pick last year that went to seed. We didn't pick many this year either, so I hope to do better at collecting them next year. This was 0.4 oz of flowers, dyeing 0.7 oz of silk:

You usually want at least as much flowers as fiber by weight.

Anyway, that white powder on the railing is snow. It didn't last long, but it's a sign of things to come.
