In the garden

I have to admit my back yard is in need of some tlc. However, with the rain and cooler temps the garden is coming back to life and I have wanted to wander outside more often. My Tropicana Canna is blooming as is a lovely clear blue morning glory.

Can you see where my color inspiration comes from in my hand dyed yarns? I did some more kool aid dying, this time experimenting with different types of yarn. The lustrous silk bamboo on the left didn't take so well and I never got the water to run clear. The next one is a bamboo wool blend that took better but I don't think it would dye very dark. The other two are both wool, roving and then superwash and both did well.
