Season of gold

The first colour of fall is yellow.  I saw it everywhere along my run this afternoon.

The kids picked a bag of goldenrod tops on the Iron Horse Trail and we brought it home to simmer in the dye pot.  Then i strained it, added mordant (alum and cream of tartar) and this shirt.

  
It has a greenish tinge to it that is so emblematic of nature right now, the green trees on their way to yellow, soon orange, then red.
