Those pesky squirrels and I are still sharing the black walnuts. And here are more results.
On the left is alpaca locks and on the right is hand spun wool from a sheep…maybe a blue-faced leicester. And, in the middle is cotton, painted with alum. All three were dipped in black walnut. And, I love each for different reasons…the cotton goes to a deep color…almost black. The wool is a nice golden brown and the alpaca is a wonderful chestnut (now to be renamed black walnut) brown.
For the keen eyes, you’ll see my pumpkins…grown by a plant from last year’s pumpkins. Wonderful pumpkins with the warty growths that I enjoy. The pumpkins are temporarily on the back of the house because of a recent theft. I don’t know if it was a two-legged neighbor, or a four-legged one but last week, one of the pumpkins was plucked prematurely from the vine and walked down the street.
