Poppies

A gorgeous orangey-pink poppy which opened this morning has an almost similar shading to some dyeing experiments I'm doing at the moment. The dyes are all natural, the yellow being turmeric; burnt orange being sappamwood, the other two a grass and bark - all Japanese dried material stuff.







Cork tree bark, giving bronze/pink. Cotton and silk fibre showing completely different colours though both were in the same dyepot!
