Dirt, what color is that exactly? Not sure my laptop is showing the true color of the blooms; is it more gray or ghostly lavender in color?

Thanks!

What color is that exactly? not sure Bev. Hmmm, right now, to me it looks like a ghostly lavender-grey-green-cream Hilarious!
how's that for helpful?

here, this one looks lavender to me


here it's looking kinda blue-lavender
Thumb of 2018-10-16/dirtdorphins/ccaa88

and here it's being that ghostly whatever--I see lavender on the outer parts of some of the the flowers and greenish in the center with not exactly white in between--but I've no idea what to call that one of the 267 shades of off-white that paint comes in--and then some of the anthers are almost blue, but also a blue lavender to purple...

Great banner Dirt!

This has got to be one of the most dramatic banners to date! It's different, exciting and mysterious, just like the spookiness of October. I love the artistic magnetism of the plant and of course the great job of the photographer. 🏆 🏆 🏆 🏆 🏆

Dirt, when first viewing this banner it reminded me of ice crystals shooting out of the ground. Fitting for me this morning as I'm in the NE where the temps are some 30deg chiller than my home were yesterday. Brrrrr
Thumbs up Thumbs up for a great banner and it is beautiful!
