Black Eyed Susans

Plant/Non Human Collaborator: Black Eyed Susans

Forager/Dyer/Human Collaborator: Cydni Carter Lopez

Color/Fiber: Olive Green Brown on Linen mordanted with Alum Acetate

Date Foraged: July 27 2020

Location Foraged: NE 18th & Glisan, Portland

Dye Method: Stove Top

Recipe: These beautiful yellow flowers grow in huge patches and I feel no qualms about harvests as many as I can, they just keep pushing up blooms all summer long. And they give the most unexpected (and difficult to photograph, I'll try and get better images) drab olive green. Perfectly earthy and not at all what is expected from a bright yellow flower.
