Purple Loosestrife moustache and an Echinacea monocle
a very fancy forager indeed
Walked around the farm today gathering St. John’s Wort, Comfrey, a nasty sunburn, and these purple friends.

Spent a self-proclaimed "professional development day” at Grand View Farm in Washington VT picking wildflowers (and raspberries) in the most beautiful meadow i’ve ever seen, dyeing wool and silk, and nerding out hard about mordants and plants. Came home with some alum, some under dyed scarves, and a whole lotta ideas.

From left to right: Daisy, Yarrow, Black Eyed Susan, Jewelweed (no flowers), Avocado skin and pit, Black Walnut, Onion skin, Cochineal. 

Con: Coming down with mysterious throat illness/infection that allopathic doctor deems “not strep” and are therefore unable to treat because they fight diseases with names, not root causes.

Pro: Finding 2 bottles of last year’s elderberry syrup in the fridge.
