Marian, Barb and Jill met at the Arboretum at the Royal Britannia Gardens to walk the trails of Cootes Paradise. The Lilacs were in full bloom. It was a beautiful day and the scents and sights were amazing. What a way to inspire creative juices. Image a lilac tinted dyepot to enhance the beauty of our spinners yarn or to colour some carded merino for felting. Isn’t there a poem that says at a certain age in life we can all wear purple?
(Jill took the top two photos and Marian the bottom one. Barb’s husband Paul edited Marian’s photo. The dogwood was also in bloom which is a bright contrast to the lilacs.)
The trio then headed to Waterdown for coffee and lunch at the Copper Kettle. They also checked out the Harrington Lane Farm store where they are running out of our cards again and have sold Carole’s red tea towel. Maybe next time the tea towel could be in lilac!
