Unexpected colour – small stone 18
Muddy roots, buried underground,
Vibrant yellow flesh.
Chopped salted and boiled,
with a final ingredient –
Old cotton sheeting. Now transformed.
Helping husband dig up an old shrub (an orange berberis) I was surprised at the vivid yellow colour of the roots. So I tried using some of them to dye some old white cotton fabric. Amazing!
