Summer in my yard.....and dyeing fibers

Starting in the Spring, I have been taking pictures of the flowers and trees blooming in my yard.  I am always amazed how the permanent structures like the pond/waterfall change each year.  I wanted to share this collage of my ever changing garden. 
On the felting front, I have spent my morning dyeing wool, silk caps, silk hankies, and firestar.  I wanted to complete dye sets with all of these materials so that some projects I have planned will have the same color tones.  I even completed a set of tea stained wool, silk gauze, linen, and tussah silk.  It's all drying now....pictures to come once it's all dry!
