Colors mimick nature

Mother nature is truly amazing!  While working in the garden early this morning, I was in awe of the bright, cheerful colors of the flowers and greens.   Nature doesn't have colors that clash within the garden. There are all kinds of shades and hues. Nothing is forced.  Nature also inpsires the dyeing of yarns.

It is fun to hand painted or kettle dye yarns from our farm.  The photos are from our garden this morning and the yarn is our merino/cashmere blend in a fingering weight The yellow green is hand painted and the purple is an ombre.
