Cut plants and herbs with care, those that are abundant now. Or use food, outer leaves of cabbage, cuttings of the berries, nettle o and dandelion! they are in flower now.
And I bicycle over small roads through fields and fields of them. Yellow lions teeth. And I make more samples and more samples, plant dye samples. With acv without, with ashes and without, with heat, with Father Sun and it makes me feel like a proper witch stirring in that hot cauldron and watch, whisper and care for fermenting bottles with plant dyes.
Purple fingers, brown stains, feathers, bones and dreams, so many dreams in those pots.
I sometimes wonder if it is enough to only make samples and love them and never make anything else with them than little flags or scarves to bind the wild hair and knot together dreads of young women.
and perhaps it is.=)
or perhaps its because of those screaming monsters. 😉
