The first rains are here and it smells wonderful, that rain on parched earth smell and my freshly washed icelandic fleece, which was island grown, had to be saved from the rain. I hardly recognized the sound until it was partially wetted whereupon I had to bring it indoors. I am going to felt with it, and it is a beautiful fleece...so between experimenting with the icelandic locks, and harvesting my indigo plants...life is busy, not to mention a million plums drying and other food happening for winter storage.
The indigo plants did very well this year, the ones in pots especially, and they are beginning to flower..so I will bring one in and collect seeds from it. so excited...
