Lansko barvanje 2 - Last year's dyeing 2

Druga rastlina, ki sem jo lani zelo veliko uporabljala za barvanje, je bila vrba. Skromno, nezahtevno drevo, pionirska na mnogi terenih. 
Tule vrbe obkrožajo Zelence s čudovito smaragdno zeleno vodo, ki izvira v posameznih "vulkančkih" na peščenem dnu jezera; to je povirje Save Dolinke v Podkorenu pri Kranjski Gori.

  

 The second plant I used very much in dyeing last year is willow tree. It is such a modest, undemanding, pioneer tree growing on various terrains.  In the picture above willows surround the beautiful  lake Zelenci, one of the two sources od the Sava river, the longest river in Slovenia, with brilliant emerald green watters springing from the bottom sands like small volcanoes. It lies in the nature reserve behind the village Podkoren near Kranjska Gora, Slovenia.

Večinoma imajo vrbe ozko podolgovato listje, zeleno do srebrnkasto. Nekaj slik vrb ob moji vsakodnevni sprehajalni/kolesarski poti čisto blizu doma. 



 

Willow trees usually have lance-shaped leaves, green to silver in colour. Above are some pictures of willows growing by the sides of my daily walking/biking track near my home.




 Čeprav so listi zeleni, zelene barve seveda ne dajo.  Kot še mnogo drugih rastlin na volni dajo rumeno. Lepo, intenzivno, dobro obstojno rumeno. Neverjetno je, kako veliko barve je shranjene v vrbovem listju. 
              




 Although the leaves are mostly green, green is not the colour it imparts to wool. Like many other plants it imparts yellow - a beautiful, intense, fast yellow colour. It is incredible how much colour is stored in willow leaves.

The willow is such a beautiful tree. It grows next to the river bank over here. I like the spaghetti you have drying outside. !!!

God bless.
