I love this color.


This is a giant hyacinth getting ready to bloom in a flowerbed right outside my front door. I have never noticed the green shading to blue shading to deep purple. It makes my eyes happy.

I sense a colorway coming on. I am imagining it in felt, not yarn, to get the subtle shading from one color to the next. I'll have to pull out the dyepot some other day though, for tomorrow is Shepherd's Harvest! There is a Cormo fleece with my name on it (They've got a beer named Jeff? I know at least one of you will get that!) waiting for me there.

Just beautiful! I love deep bluey purples but not reddish ones. Imagine a garden with only shades of green and purple, perhaps with the odd accent of white or spike of burnt orange...

Happy eyes, I felt that this afternoon walking into our local freshly rained on woodland park. Every shade of green you can imagine in every direction we looked. Happy eyes, happy smile, happy mind.
