It happened again this morning. A new daylily bloomed with an unusual color.
Its name is South Seas, but that color…
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.
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.
P.S. South Seas looks candy with hints of blush and a honey throat. (i.e It’s red and yellow. )
