a neighbor, who happens to be a tax client of my husband’s, has followed my recent explorations into botanical dyes and inks, an brought me this amaranth, which is currently macerating in a five gallon bucket on my front stoop, and creating the most beautiful magenta colored liquid. thank you kendra. you are a kindred soul. and i hope my husband gets you an enormous refund this year.
hopi red dye amaranth
