lovely lovely plant golden rod………where are you? I went to my favourite spot overlooking the wildfowl lakes on Romney Marsh, between the MoD firing range and the wind farm. We really squeeze wildlife into very restricted spaces …..thankfully wildlife still continues to rise to the challenge
However the patch I’ve been eyeing for months has now……gone over ah! I had my secateurs at the ready and everything…no go, I only need a few flower heads so..
Back to Hastings where
Fortunately, we are a little later and cooler so phew experimenting with golden rod has taken place today
Into the pot for some boiling
Onto the mordanted wool, which clearly created a chemical reaction as you can see….bubbling soapy foam, I’ve left this to soak overnight but already you can see the amazing colour evolving…
