Let me tell you how excited I was to see that my photo for indigo was the winner last week on Project 64! Totally unexpected and totally delightful! I had lots to choose from last week, but this week was a different story.
This is lavender, although almost no one I've talked to this week would give this pinkish crayon that label. When I went to the box of crayons to look for my idea of lavender, I pulled out wisteria. Perhaps purple mountain majesty would be close, or even mauvelous. This seems way too pink, and it's a strange pink. I've carried the crayon around all week again.
As it turns out I was staring at some lavender all week without it registering. Several of the flowers in my Valentine's Day Bouquet are very close. By the time I realized it the flowers were fading, but I had taken an earlier photo.
Then Saturday night as we were leaving to go to dinner at friends, I noticed the cap to the Woolite for Dark Clothes.
It's nearly a perfect match. But my favorite is the tulips I bought for the kitchen table. And yes, I held the crayon next to them in the grocery store. I wonder what people think . . .
Today is Matt's birthday. Happy Birthday to one of the kindest, nicest men I know. He's . . .
