early summer harvests

Summer has finally started here in my little Breton home ! I'm still experimenting a lot with fermentation dyeing and right now I'm harvesting everything that could be useful.

Have a look...

The front garden, which is mainly a herb garden.
I work with a lot of herbs,
for medicine, beverages, incense, food
and of course dyes...

Broad-leaved Dock roots

or the art of harvesting willow bark

and apple tree bark

clockwise: barks from oak, apple tree, willow and plum tree

a few fibers waiting to be dyed

some fallen Eucalyptus leaves
water from the river, common sorrel, wood ash
sheep wool, alpaca and silk yarn, paper thread

Thanks for visiting
