Yesterday my "busy" day turned into a day of sneezing my head off and getting little accomplished. My allergies to pollen caused embarrassingly violent sneezing fits in public. Thanks Pollen, you're areal pal.
I did get to thinking about the color of the haze different pollens can leave on things outdoors. Only a design junkie thinks like that. Read on as I turn lemons into a blog post, tee hee.
First, the acid green ...
It really isn't a color I enjoy and like actual pollen it gives me a rather unwell feeling.
I won't go into the other connotations it holds for me, suffice it to say, its gross.
There is also that pollen haze left on one's car at certain times of year that brings to mind a color I am happy to see elsewhere, citron.
It is not quite the bright yellow of a lemon but a redder, earthier color.

The Robert Allen Dwell Studio fabric I used in curtains for my TV room calls this colorway Citron. It has a mustardy look.

As you can see it is a bit darker than the Bella Porte by RA in the same colorway. Damn dye lots!
OK, back to pollen.
This not quite yellow yellow is a perfect mate for the ubiquitous gray.

I hope today, I spend less time on that sofa you see clutching a box of Puffs with lotion and more time in the forecast 73 degree sunshine mocking that pollen!
The perpetual wind in these parts makes a Benadryl induced coma more likely.
