Thank you for the pretty picture for a Sunday. We are expecting 18 inches of snow this week! What I'd give to see a flower!! Happy sewing Muv. As always you've brightened my day. Donna in Harwich, Massachusetts
What, more snow??!! We haven't had a single flake all winter. If you can imagine mud, mud and mud, followed by daffodils, primroses and celandines, then you have the picture of what it is like here.Keep warm, Donna.Love, Muv
A sisyphean task. But I have found the leaves make a strong yellow dye.
Dye... something to dream about when digging. Not the colour of dandelions, by any chance?
Beautiful flower. Is this in the morning glory family? Or maybe primrose - they have terrible wandering roots too - great for hillsides though.
It is the same family - convolvulos arvensis - but a much smaller flower. The shade of pink varies, with some flowers being almost white. This was a particularly dark pink flower, which is why I took the photo.
