Woad: Seeds

One of my favorite dye blogs is Rihivilla Dyeing with natural dyes. Wonderful pictures and good information. The current post: Riihivilla, Dyeing with natural dyes: Now in my garden Nyt puutarhassa has a good picture (scroll down a bit) of what Woad seeds look link when ready to harvest.

Pictures of my going-to-seed Woad plant below. (Hand in pictures to give an idea of the size of the seeds.)

      Is the group “Natural dyeing in New Zealand/Aotearoa and Australia” – I just subscribed to that one.

      I don’t know what camera is used for the Rihivilla site but I like the Nikon p5100. It’s small, portable and takes a good picture. Mine is a refurb.

      Take card,

    Hi, and thanks for recommending my blog:)
    I learn all the time and that is why the internet is so great, to find and share information.
    i take most of my photos myself, some are taken by my husband (like the woad seed picture, I couldn’t get a sharp picture of the swaying seeds, so I asked him to take one, he is better at it), we had Pentax K10 which broke down a month ago, so the latest pictures are taken with a borrowed Canon 450, until we get a new Pentax (DH likes it best), it is mostly what you are used to which is the best:)
