Walking has its benefits

If I have to take my ageing legs for a walk I figure I might as well go somewhere interesting.  My current favourite destination right now  is the Bayswater wetlands, not far from my place.The wetlands are under threat from private developers but I hope soon that the State Government will wake up and protect them.  There is, after all, an election early next year.

As I walk I search the ground for fallen pieces of dye goodness.  Agonis flexuosa, lots of different eucalypts and unknown casuarina species are currently my flotsam of choice.

Long story short, my legs might weigh heavily on me  but my soul is in alt as I look at the results of steaming my “finds” in various weights of woven silk. A lovely record of my walk!

    Wasn’t it a glorious morning for a walk today? It’s great that you’ve got such a lovely spot so close – helps keep the incentive up.
