Rambles in the Rainbow Garden (Part 1: Indigo)

Bottoming Out in Indigo (c) July 2014

On Sunday morning it was hot and very humid (though not, I concede, nearly as much so as in Bangladesh, where someone I love is now doing cholera research).

As usual, I was armed with a camera.

“This one’s for my rainbow gallery.  I’m short on orange,” I announced, bringing the breakfast-seeking process to a screeching halt so I could squint in the sun and click away at day lilies.  “I have everything else.”

“You know there’s not really an indigo.”

As it turned out, however, when I mined my recent photographs for indigo, it was a surprisingly elusive hue.

But I still believe in it.

  1. Well the night sky is indigo blue as far as I’m concerned…and so is the ink I used to fill my fountain pen with..and so is the deep ocean just as the lingering light is dissolved into the salty waves 🙂

  2. The wild indigo plant grows on the prairies of the Midwest, as well as baptisia alba (the white indigo), and I suppose pioneers used them to make dyes.

  3. Love this blog and the photos — total delight and we love this clan — they enjoy the whole world and each other — and three dogs. AM
