>>> awed by the perfect blue of a robin's egg, found on the trail.
>>> spotting mushrooms pushing through the earth here and there, counter-intuitive to the calendar.
>>> appreciating the last of the trilliums, fading as the weather warms up.
>>> noting the perfection of a tiny wasp's nest, abandoned on the forest floor.
>>> preparing an iron mordant with rusty nails in a vinegar solution, for later use in dyeing.
>>> admiring the vibrant colour of the clematis blooming outside my door, even more so when kissed by raindrops.
hope your week is starting well...even better if it is a holiday monday like i am enjoying this morning. the rain is still falling outside, determined but gentle. i'm currently typing while savouring the warmth under the covers, but my tummy is rumbling and it might be time to embrace the day.
