I've just returned from a family vacation to Corsica. It was our first trip to the granite isle, and I was dumbstruck by the wild beauty of the island.
A wild olive tree
I'm only sorry that I didn't bring some skeins of wool along for dyeing. There were dye plants everywhere. It's a dyers paradise. I saw mushrooms, lichens, eucalyptus trees, olive leaves, wild fennel, pomegranate trees, Holm oaks, and so many others.
The maquis is a mess of aromatic trees and shrubs. I'm sure many of them are full of dye color.
The only thing I spirited home with me was a small sack of windfall lichens.
I'm sure this wasn't our last trip to Corsica. I'm already dreaming of camping on the beach and mordanting yarns with sea water.
