this is from the spring. but we are beginning to feel the cold weather again now and to sort through our woollies and cool-weather wardrobes. I've got to bring those bins down from the attic and I hope the mice haven't found them.
ironweed, surprisingly, made a very nice deep green. i discovered the plant by surprise while driving errands. it was growing in a field and i only recognized it because i had seen it in my plant dyeing book.
