Hibiscus Flowers

We have been picking hibiscus blooms almost every day from our 4 new little plants. After about 2 weeks of gathering and storing in the refrigerator, we get enough to simmer to make a tea for dyeing wool yarn.

The pretty petals look kinda sad after the pigment is simmered out.

We are hoping that sealing it in canning jars will keep it fresh until we accumulate enough to do some dyeing, and are looking forward to using our own natural dyes.

Keep watching for bee-yoo-ti-ful dyed yarns pictures!
