Wishful thinking

On the way to visiting Villa Cimbrone (in September) we passed this organic garden - if I hadn't been incapacitated and the rock walls hadn't been so high ...... I just might have invaded to enjoy the ambiance.

Last summer we grew some of the very long zucchini, only we didn't have the super-high structure needed and as a consequence the zucchinis ended up wandering at groundlevel.

My first bundle of joy

Scuse the pun.
Actually managed to leave it for over a week before opening.  Eucalypt leaves, silk rolled around a v small log, simmered in a dye bath of avocado skin. Interestingly, the bottom right corner shows the strongest avocado coloring, and that was on the outside of the bundle.  Then the bundle was placed in a plastic bag, rolled in newspaper and left to the vagaries of the weather.  And v strange was the weather indeed.

To be gifted to (Art)ifice for the creation of something interesting.
