Life can be full of surprises and this is definitely one of them.
Yesterday I made a lovely red dye from a bowl of rose petals
from my garden.
The roses were red, the petals were red, the dye looked red,
and this definitely isn't red or even pink, but
the most beautiful shade of apricot.
I know used vinegar as my mordant so I wonder what will
happen if I use alum next time.
Watch this space....!
