Rudbeckia?

Continuing the rainbow series. Previous posts were pink, red and orange. I need to finish the series in time to prepare some cards to hand out at the Brooklyn Blogfest in May. Indigo is going to be tough; I might skip it, go straight to purple/violet, and come back to indigo later.

Great photos

Love the rubeckia and really like the Manilla fenders.

Okay, you got me. What's a "Manilla fender"? Is that what I'm calling the "rope ball"?

The County Clerk said...

Manilla is the kind of rope... hemp... golden manilla rope. Before synthetics, it was the best. Comes from (originally) The Philipines.

A fender is a tool used to keep a boat off of anything that might cause damage. You've seen 'em... hanging off boats and piers.

YOUR picture is of fenders wrapped in Manilla cordage. (And since it is nautical, CORDAGE is the word. If you take a rope on a boat, it is no longer rope, it is cordage. If you take cordage off a boat, it becomes rope.) I'm not sure what a fender in agarden would be... except quite beautiful.



Beautiful. Nicely done.
