I went on a harvesting walk through the city of Savannah to find plant material to dye my silk material. Luckily it was right after the Holidays and people were throwing out old bouquets and center pieces. To say the least, I found gold mines. Here's some of the process.
After they steamed I boiled some of the bundles in a bath of red wine, yellow onion skins, and black tea.
And then I wrapped some of them around a rusty iron spike.
