It’s Labor Day in the United States. But it’s also Fashion Week. I change the flowers on my front porch, for holidays. This year it seemed more appropriate to plant for color combinations than the sweat of my brow.
I’ve been haunted by aubergine and pale blue for a while now. Just enough offset for edge, softness for serenity. The ghostly voices grew louder when Audi posted this outfit, here. Then Little Augury put up a post about Wallace Simpson’s wedding dress. Did you know it was pale blue? Me neither. I vote we change the color names to coleus and lobelia.
The green was incidental. Tough to plant without the verdant, so I went all in with shoes and gloves. Crocs make really good gardening clompers. That I did know.
Happy Fashion Week and Labor Day to all. For fun, color, and eventual profit.
