Well, I got exactly what I was hoping for:
I dyed, waxed, discharged, and overdyed with this exact result in mind and voila: it actually happened! The picture really doesn't do it justice, as the orange is more orange and the red-violet is more of a magenta, but you get the general idea.
I even like the dewax bath, with all of the wax glistening on the surface
I spent the morning in the garden.........where else?
my poppies are in love with the warm days and the cool nights.......aren't they so cute!!
I've almost completed the (dreaded) project! It's been a lot of work, but the results are so great! I think I will clear the vigorous and damned periwinkle all the way to the Viburnum and then call it quits. I may plant daylilies there or perhaps a couple of blueberry bushes. Hmmmmm: what do you think?
It was a beautiful morning in the garden...........can you see the guy in his little kayak? There's always a lovely cooling breeze off of the lake, which seems to revive me just when I think I can't work another minute!
Hope you're having a great weekend.
