Monday Connection: Nature’s Dyes

poke berries
 
Take a walk in the woods or park and see if you can find any berries to paint a picture with.

In the above picture I used berries from a Pokeweed plant. Do Not Eat Them! This plant is toxic so use gloves if you pick them and squash the berries with a hard object to extract the juice. Then grab a paintbrush and paint away on piece of bark, paper, leaf, or rock.
