After the late winter rains, the fountain plant really burst forth. The red was so vibrant I thought it might be a good printing candidate. I cut off a branch and also used some of the fresh wood violet leaves in my yard. I rolled them up in a silk scarf and simmered them in a bath lightly sprinkled with tumeric.
This is the branch surrounded by violet leaves. There is a slight pinkish cast to the print.
These are the violet leaves.
This is the whole scarf.
