Lots to show and tell

Lots to show - here is my sons kindergarten - beautiful room.
He loves school - such a change from last year.

My older one loves school too - we have the "best" teacher in the building - Yea!

I was dyeing with goldenrod and dyers coriopsis today - beautiful oranges and yellow.  Goldenrod changes if you put it in an ammonia water bath.  The three on the left are all out of the same pot.  The colors are just so striking.  The yellows are for the first grade knit lion project.  I would think they will start it after the holidays.  It will be great to bring the sunshine into the classroom during the cold winter months.   

This is the Dyers coriopsis flower - different from the yellow version.

Here we are flying kites and my husband is cutting down the hops up on the porch.  He use to make lots of beer but house projects have taken over lately.  I hope he makes more soon - I might steal some of the flowers to dye with if he is not careful!!

Can't you just taste them!!
