The wild sea grasses on the beach are beige too.

Interestingly, the word beige, come from the French word, “bege” the color of undyed wool or cotton.

  1. What a beautiful post 😉 Thank you for the etymology of ‘beige’. I’d forgotten that if I’d ever heard it before. The doily is exquisite. Did you or a loved one crochet it? Lovely photos all around today, Thank you 😉

      1. Same here. I crochet every evening, though not such fine and intricate work. I worked in cotton ecru thread in my younger days, but only tried one project recently. It is a meditation in itself to do this work, keeping us mindful, focused, and at peace. Best wishes, WG

          1. Exactly. I crochet to have something to do with my hands and to keep my mind occupied while my husband watches TV. And, I love seeing the beautiful colors and patterns unfold beneath my fingers. Best wishes, WG

  2. Great post. And you’ve reminded me I was determined to retake my crocheting. Must get on with it. Beige is a very flexible colour and it combines well with everything although I hadn’t paid that much attention to it in nature. Thanks Colleen!
