Moving around the back yard, I plucked a bunch of Penstemon blooms. This plant has a white flower…with a lovely green/purple leaf. What a turn…I GOT COLOR. Not the ultimate color, but it’s yellowy (B)…and with tannin(C), it’s a bit darker.
The big surprise? Wild Carrot (Queen Anne’s Lace.) This is pretty (for a weed) plant that you see in unmown areas…all over. It has flat flowers, with lots of small blooms. White. I didn’t expect much. I picked a few stalks. Wowser the color.
Yellow like this isn’t my favorite color…but it’s strong and right in the backyard. And, now I’m dreaming of an indigo pot. Dreaming of greens and anxious for my new tannin.
