Gray Can Be Attractive
Gray clouds, gray moods, gray hair... not much I'm enamored with there... though I've come to appreciate at my age that my gray head of hair is at least preferable to many of my friends' lack of hair of any hue (doesn't the old saying go: "In the land of the blind, the one-eyed man is king"). However one gray I do especially like is when the blue hydrangeas just pass over into that metallic gray stage. Every time I see one, I think I should be drying flowers.
Still, that particular blue is so subtle, so soft. On close inspection there are threads of indigo and violet. It's passing is sad.Post a Comment
