Indian Pipe In the Woods
Walking though the woods every day as I do, looking for stuff to weave, you would think I have seen just about everything I could see back there. But this Autumn, I came upon some amazing little "flowers" that I have never seen before.
This year has been very wet. Have you ever seen Indian Pipe?
Also called Corpse Flower, it is a fungus, and I was amazed at the
variety of colors, sometimes growing in close proximity to each other.
They range from white to pink to red and even purplish tones!
These are just a few that I was able to snap photos of, in the growing light...
I am a fiber artist, wife, and mother. My Catching the Moon series of weavings is largely about my life and the pursuit of dreams. See my Catching the Moon series on my website. I generally use basketry techniques, but love to mix media and techniques. I also use this blog to highlight my online guild, The Pine Needle Group (www.PineNeedleGroup.com )Thanks for reading my blog!
