The first day of the season

Today is not the first day of spring but it is the first day of the rust dyeing season here in Wisconsin. The best weather for rust dyeing is in July, August and Early September when it is HOT and humid. But starting in mid April, I set up the rust dye studio on the deck just off the kitchen. Today I set out 3/4 of a yard of the "trees" patterning. They need to be kept wet for several days and with rain in the forecast, me going to Chicago tomorrow, and my taxes in the mail, I thought today was the perfect day to start. Mister Wind had other ideas or I would have done a whole yard. I'll post a picture tomorrow.
