gardening and some folk motifs

As usual at this time of the year I am all busy digging, sowing and re-planting (all the veg and flower plus the hedge) not so much time for textile work.
But some of my gardening is actually fiber-related, like flax (six different sorts from the genebank)
and japanese indigo. Bought seeds from Wildcolors in UK, (£3.50 for 10 seeds),
nobody seems to grow japanese indigo in Sweden…
well, some peripheral knitting has been going on too – another random sock
nearly finished a cardigan for my man
and last Sunday when it stared to rain (finally, no need to water the garden !) we went to Kulturen open-air museum to look (again) at some allmoge woodworking and textiles.
