Unlimited Palette

Close your eyes for a long blink and think “flower”.

Which of the thousands come to mind? In which color? One bloom or a grouping?

In my case it depends a little upon the season. It’s spring in St. Louis, warm for the date, and the daffodils are bursting out. So I’m thinking spring yellow.

White and all the shades of pink, rose, and red are popular also. Add a dash of blue, violet, or orange and you’ve got most of it covered. Many of you could name one or more variety which fits two or three shades of the above color list.

A couple weeks ago I found a new-to-me color. Brown. Or perhaps rust. Certainly an unexpected pleasure at the orchid show.
