Thank you for relating that story of your meeting Holmes Miller and
family. It can be so edifying to be taken through as a friend to someone
like that. He probably loved to share his love for the plants to someone
as sincerely interested as you.

I think you are right in thinking that it would be an interesting topic
of discussion. As you were, I am now at the end of a very long day so it
probably is not the best time. I look at charts and descriptions of
colors and wonder at times how subjective color perception could be. I
guess there could be some eye training like one that is involved in the
Fine Arts might have but it seems that even a change of lighting could
change the way a person sees shades.

Time to close the day but i enjoy the discussion..
