A Little Bit of Colour

I have taken the tapestry out of the garden. It has gained a little bit of colour from the hollyhock flowers.

I'm not sure if that colour will stay. If it rains in the near future I may find out.

The tapestry is currently hanging on the clothes line. Rain is forecast for Tuesday, so I may leave it there till then. That will be the test, whether the colour stays in during rain.

Then I  am going to put it in the compost heap. We have some new greenery in it at the moment, so that may have an effect.
The compost heap is covered to keep the forever hungry dog out! 

The compost is only at about 40 degrees Celsius at the moment. But that is warm enough to do something (she says, hopefully). It sometimes gets up to 60 degrees. That would be interesting.

There has been some family discussion about whether or not it will smell after being in the compost, so it may have to be washed, which may get rid of any colour also.

It is definitely still a work in progress!
