August 2013 Photo Scavenger Hunt
I've struggled a bit with this month's list but managed to get them all in the end

these are seed heads of a dock plant. When I was a kid we lived on my uncle's farm, and attached to their farmhouse was a unused hay loft. The door was high up in the outside wall with no steps up to it, so it was accessed by using a ladder. My cousin and I made it into our play house. We acquired some old vases for the wild flowers we picked and had pretend tea parties. We used to strip the seeds off docks for pretend brown sugar and put it in a bowl like this. We didn't have any other pretend food, just the sugar!
Whenever I see the dock seeds it always takes me right back to then

the background fabric is a satin maxi skirt that I made in the 70s. It's a bit tight for me now, but I can't bear to get rid of it because I love the fabric so much. I really ought to make something with it....
