Lost Arts studio

A lot of the fiber arts I enjoy are things like tatting, netmaking, chair caning, and even weaving, where people will come up to me when I demonstrate and solemnly tell me, "That's a lost art."

On the Internet, nobody knows you're a chicken. (With apologies to Peter Steiner.)

But you have to say it in that earnest tone that small children use: "Leeeeafsss". Get your lower teeth right on your lip, "Leeeeeafssss."

Hops, Humulus lupulus.

Columbine, Aquilegia spp.

Lily, Lilium spp.

Strawberry, Fragaria virginiana.

American beech, Fagus grandifolia.

Poison ivy, Toxicodendron radicans.

Beautiful leaffffs! We had some beautiful briday wreath blossoms that I wanted a photo of but the wind/rain of this week took all the blossoms away. Now it's just green. They didn't last long.
