local colour

A beautiful walnut tree, right in the middle of the local town centre. I must have walked past it hundreds of times over the years, but never really noticed what it was. 

We found a handful of windfalls on the grass verge. The dye I made last year is just about exhausted. Time for a fresh brew. 

Finds like this make my day.


  1. i shall look out for some as i'd realy like to try dyeing with walnuts. thank you for the reminder. x

  2. it is amazing how long it lasts. same here.

  3. my walnut dye vat continues on, it's many years old now.

  4. If it'd been a snake, it would've bitten you. That's what we say around here when we somehow, inexplicably overlook what's right in front of us. Really good find!
