Another Jan Eco Sample

Purple laurapetulum (right) and Flowering Cherry leaves Left on cotton. The laurapetulum continues to give quite good prints in pink shades but the flowering cherry is quite a pale yellow. Soon the prints will get a golden colour as the Autumn comes on. I wonder if the changes in tannin are more pronounced in deciduous trees than those (like the laurepetulum) that are evergreen. I am finding I use more deciduous trees for eco printing with the exception of eucalyptus.
