Marigold Dye Results

Here are the results of the dyeing I did with marigold (Tagetes sp.) flowers:

Top Left: alum mordanted cotton 
Middle Left: alum mordanted linen
Bottom Left: alum mordanted cotton in 2nd use of dyebath
Top Right: copper mordanted cotton
Bottom Right: alum mordanted cotton dyed with marigold leaves

(the colors are greener and brighter than they appear here on my computer monitor. the photo was taken under fluorescent lights. I will take another photo in natural light then swap it if it turns out better.)
I also did some eco-bundles with fresh marigold flowers and leaves. These are the results:
