Cheater, Cheater, Color Reader

It happened again this morning.  A new daylily bloomed with an unusual color.

Its name is South Seas, but that color…

South Seas daylily

Time to pull out the cheat sheets.

I used to use my colored pencil collection, but this got rather cumbersome…

carrying around a box of pencils…holding each up to the flower…

Now, I whip out my color charts from the internet.

Hot Chocolate calla

I happen to know that by the time it gets through my printer and the photos and the internet,

there is bound to be some change in tint, tone and hue.

I know someone is going to tell me there is a APP for that.  There is an APP for everything.

I can only use “lipstick” so many times (twice) before it gets redundant.

So now you know. The FLOWER is a cheater.  (Blushing scarlet.)

I’d like to think of myself as a color-reader over-achiever.

FLOW

P.S.  South Seas looks candy with hints of blush and a honey throat. (i.e It’s red and yellow. )
