January was wet! I had forgotten just how wet until I was reminded by this photograph taken at the local nature reserve.



The rivers and streams were full to overflowing.


Fortunately we were safe, but in other parts of the country many suffered flooding and had to move out of their homes.

Weekly Photo Challenge – Twinkle

No stars, it was too foggy. Lots of twinkle, though


The South Embankment of the Thames, prompted by the Weekly Photo Challenge. More on Just Snaps

Weekly Photo Challenge – gone but not forgotten……


Just Snaps had a post about coffee earlier this week, but today I want to focus on tea! Above are used teabags. The drinking of tea is over – the ritual of afternoon tea no longer possible. These are dried and not yet emptied but waiting with purpose.


Tea contains tannin which is a great aid in natural dyeing. The picture above shows some suitably coloured naturally dyed fabric (dyed with leaves, not tea leaves, aided by tannin). It is for a small project which will hopefully be finished by Christmas. You can see just a part below.


Full details of the Weekly Challenge can be found here. Just Snaps has one too.
