Last Friday two of the dyers expressed amazement at our cyclamen. They are the sign of autumn and they are everywhere in our garden. They seed freely and we have a wide range of leaf shapes (this is cyclamen hederifolium after all) and colours range from white and bright red.
The colchicums will be next and then the nerines. Our maples are looking as though they might change colour soon but I have seen a large ornamental maple tree down the road which has turned completely to orange-gold.
And autumn means classes start up again. Tomorrow I start on 'Creative Textiles' in Bournville (as in Chocolate town) which is in the south of Birmingham. I have collected everything on the list together. This is going to be very interesting for me.
