Results of a couple of Buddleja solar dye pots I left stewing away while we were in France. 💛
The darker bloom was picked in Victoria park and gave a slightly more olive-toned yellow. The lighter flowers were picked in our own Patriot Square, and gave a clearer mustard.
“O thou City, thou hypocritical City!
Thou blindfold drowsy England,
that sleeps and snorts in the bed of covetousness,

A quote from a 1649 propaganda pamphlet by radical Gerrard Winstanley, founder of The True Levellers / Diggers.
Thanks for showing me around @elliedoney 🌿
