I have been collecting it this winter off the ground. Supposedly it is a good dye source. Will let you know how it works this spring/summer when I try it.Laurene
Ah, Laurene, Hello! Are you Anonymous commenter on last night's post?I just love Old Man's Beard and there's SO MUCH of it around these days. Far more than when I was young. I'm curious about the conditions that are making this happen. What color do you expect to get from it? Something silverish, I suspect. I'll be curious to know.
What an apt name!!
I know! Of course that's just the common name I learned as a kid. I've never looked up the Latin name.
