Cole and I snuck out to the woods between rain storms this afternoon to collect a basket full of bright yellow tansy flowers.  It was so nice to spend a few quiet moments alone with my middle boy, talking and working together.   We filled a few jars with the flowers, leaves and a basket of acorns I've been hoarding since spring.  I filled each jar with boiling water and will let them sit overnight.  I'm planning on dyeing a few skeins of wool yarn tomorrow, so stop back and see how it all turns out!
