*note to many many future readers of this epic thread that will inevitably come up as they themselves agonize over a perfect color selection.

Pick anything in the general spectrum that you like. It will change, sometimes by the hour, and rarely sit at what you agonized over.

But here’s the thing. If you like the base color, you will LOVE LOVE LOVE the dozens of variations of it. And the pinks, oranges and even the grays/blacks as the sun disappears. Many of them co-mingle so you will see several of the 2nd/3rd/4th choices as the sky changes. And. You. Will. Love. Them. All.

Oh yeah. Before. During. Second/third/forth guessing after. We’ve ALL been there. But how’d it work out ??? You have all kinds of colors that you *didn’t* pick. And they are all SPECTACULAR.

And they are still coming. The back half of the season is different from the first half. Rest assured you’ll love those too. !!

In the early season I could change my color drastically just by walking around the yard. At the second story deck it was yellow reflecting the pollen popping. Across the yard it was neon green reflecting the leaves popping. Then a few steps closer and POOF it was blue again. There were dozens of blues over the course of the day, Pink and Orange as the sun went down and for 20 min immediately after it went from dark gray to black.

Soooooooooo much needless worry over ‘blue’.
