eye of the needles

i love the color of blue spruce.  i have loved it ever since childhood.  we had one in our yard when i grew up.  the blue spruce is not native to minnesota.  it is a rocky mountain tree.  but it’s a popular horticultural plant,  so we have lots of them around.  the silver-sage colored needles are a welcome variation on the sometimes monotonous green palettes of both winter and summer.

    very nice, reminds me of Andy Goldsworthy’s work. Google him if you aren’t familiar with him, you will love his work.

    I love the color too. It’s a lot like the color of Restoration Hardware’s “Silver Sage” wall paint, of which I have all over my home. Something about the “softness” of the gray in the green.
