Saffron, Scott, saffron.

It is beautiful, isn't it. Saffron, I mean.

I sometimes feel a bit of resistance to Christo, and yet the impact of his work on so many people is really something to ponder. Everyone sounds just so surprised to be ... happy, to be made happy by something so simple.

Well, Heph, that has been interesting me too, now that you mention it.

Christo calls his flaps saffron. And if you click on the swatch of fabric on that first link and then enlarge it, you will see that it is indeed a sort of burnt yellow with a redder thread running through it.

Saffron is a somewhat reddish yellow, a burnt yellow, but somehow, in the full sunlight, it looks orange, or this fabric does.

I'm thinking of painting my living room, Heph. That's why I stare at those flaps so much.

quite rightly

But then Saffron is also known as (trying to write this phonetically) Haldi in curry circles
