My friend Julie of the Julie B Booth blog, wrote a post the other day entitled Searching for Roy G Biv which showed the most beautiful yellow hibiscus and included the words Yellow. 'Nuf said.
I looked from the hibiscus photo to the blog title to
Julie's short text a couple of times, wondering all the while what the
connection was. Was Roy G Biv a botanist? Was he an author as well? Or
an artist, perhaps, of botanical illustrations. Just what did Roy G
Biv have to do with a yellow hibiscus?
So...oh! the laughter really can be heard via cyberspace, you know...I did a quick Google search on Mr Biv.
[I know that sound! Someone just fell off their chair from laughing so hard!] And felt like a blooming idiot. [pun totally intended] Never had I heard the colors of the rainbow referred to as Roy G Biv. Or if I have, it was long ago forgotten.
The funny thing...admittedly not near as funny as my not knowing what Roy G Biv is...is that the day Julie posted yellow was the same day I had posted Red. A challenge was issued [from me to her] to see who could post orange, which Julie won with photos from SCAD, better known as Savannah College of Art and Design.
With red, orange and yellow covered, green is next and it's my turn. Here are a few offerings from around the house.
