The color aqua

The color of the restful sea Posted by Hello

In my seemingly never ending quest to take extreme close ups of flowers, I have gone mad.
This photo is a fraud. It's my pillow. Not a real flower. Just Silk, but what a great color for a flower.

For the sale of our home, I bought an entirely new bed set for our master bedroom. I didn't like the neutral spread I bought, but it had a teal, aqua color running thru it. The bedroom set is not us, but it was part of the plan, to make there room as inviting as possible for sale. It worked. I even have had moving estimators say what a nice room the bedroom is. I packed up the spread and all the pillows. In our next home, it will be the guest room wearing aqua.

Does anyone know of this color in a natural flower?

Have you ever seen a jade vine(Strongylodon macrobotrys) in bloom? The flowers look completely different, but the color is similar. They are a tropical vine, so probably won't grow for you unless you have a large greenhouse, but if you ever see one in bloom, you won't forget it.

There is one growing here in the conservatory of the New York Botanical Garden. When it blooms, it is amazing.
