The temperature has really dropped over the last couple of days,so much so that everyone wanted to be inside in the cafes when we went to the market on Sunday-a bit of a change from basking in the glorious sunshine.I will need to do my last Japanese indigo dyeing tomorrow,before the colder weather realy sets in.At present ,the plants are lovely and bushy and this will be the second picking-maybe stronger blues? More of that later.Meanwhile
