My Blue Heaven — 2 Comments

  1. Lovely post and photos, Sue. What’s the story with the little piglet? And the blue laundry?

  2. The little pig belongs to the younger man trying to raise money for an animal rights group, but I imagine he had a hard sell because the Gascon eat a lot of pig, and the blue clothes are what we dyed in the woad class. Woad is the original blue dye plant that was used for soldiers uniforms, etc. It’s was rediscovered by an American woman and her French husband who wanted to match the blue color of the shutters on their old house. They rediscovered the plant and recreated a cottage industry.
