The weather on the west coast has been glorious. The garden is filled with leaf buds unfurling and spring flowers in full bloom. Here is a photo of my first round of nature dyeing from some of our beautiful spring flora. From top to bottom we have: the exhaust from hydrangea leaves, hydrangea leaves, woodland violet leaves, exhaust from lilac flowers, lilac flowers, woodland violet flowers, lilac leaves and bachelor button buds. Poor bachelor buttons, I did not even give them a chance to bloom, but I got what I was hoping for…….a beautiful off white. A great start to the nature dyeing season wouldn’t you say?
