A few weeks ago I spent some time dyeing wool in my fire pit. Purple asters, yarrow, artemisa...they all gave yellows in varying shades.
Spending time by the fire with the sound of dabbling ducks in the background makes me happy to my core. Though the foliage has changed color by now, the ducks are still out there dabbling and it makes me want to stoke the fire up all over again.
The colors I achieved here were from (top right, moving clockwise) goldenrod, purple asters, that yellow daisy-like flower I still haven't identified, dried tansy stems, artemisia (absinthe), and yarrow. I used alum as a mordant.
I could hold these colors up to the sky right now and find perfect matches in the changing leaves. Mother Nature knows her colors. I'm none too eager for her to show me white, but I'll take these yellows any day.
Have a lovely day, all.
