the colours of May

From left to right - birch bark, dandelion flowers, apple leaves, birch leaves (more on that tomorrow), nettle leaves, dock leaves, dandelion overdyed with nettle, rhubarb root and leaves, dandelion overdyed with birch leaves, rhubarb root and blackberries.

My favourites change all the time. Today I'm feeling a particular love for the corals of apple leaves and birch bark, the nettle and the dock leaf.

This all started off as a bit of fun in the extra garden time I've had recently, but now I find myself ordering supplies for iron dips and plotting next year's seed sowing schedule, ha.

Things to try in June:

pear bark and leaves
more birch bark experiments
a quest to find browns
experimenting with dips
