I was jogged by a memory of brilliant green on silk when i walked past the cottonwoods this morning with the DogFaced Girl. They're all abud with the most gorgeous tufts of burgundy and won't last long, so i thought i'd better take advantage.
Last years results, respectively on silk with iron and silk with no iron:
My bag of goodies:
A bit of hollyhock and rover bell leaves in there as well--they're up, they're growing, there's craploads so i'm gonna use some!
I'll have to get some closer close-ups of these because they are so beautiful on their own!
(My fingers looked as though i had stuck them in the ahem, scooping procedure necessary while walking a dog--the sap is quite sticky and dirty..)
And i thought to wash all the old FAILS from the beginning of all these ecoprint and natural dye experiments--always check to see there isn't a pink procion piece accidentally scooped in.....
