  3. I love your garden! The lily in the sweet potato vines... the sweet squash blossoms, the pond... everything looks wonderful. Just to start each day with an early morning garden walk has to be glorious!

  4. What a beautiful slide show of your fabulous flowers and garden! I love the nasturtium and the little elf patch! Tomatoes look great. The squash blossoms are ready to eat! Saw a great recipe using them on the food network with Alton Brown - yours are much more inspiring, however!

    P.S. I would love to see pics of your silks after the acid dyeing (when they're dry). Also, do you use the same microwave for dyeing that you would use for food (i.e. is it safe)?

  6. Microwave dyeing it totally safe. No bad stuff will get into the air or on the inside of the microwave. The only chemical is vinegar, and the dye is totally enclosed by the container and plastic wrap. I have never had anything interesting happen.
    I dyed th silk and sent it off without taking pictures. How unlike me. I'll be doing it again sometime. I'll take pictures then.

    Thanks for the tour.

  11. My word! Your garden pictures are so clear and colorful. Your photography is even better than usual (which is always very good) What program do you use to put the slide show together?
