Elusive Indigo: Roy Reminder Update

A Roy G Biv array of tomatoes.

Just a reminder that this Thursday, July 18, the Search for Roy G Biv (the colors of the rainbow) continues with the ever elusive INDIGO.

I find this to be the toughest color for me...Google it and you tend to see the various blues of the natural dye or a psychedelic violet! So...I leave it up to you to interpret.

Yesterday, I took off for a walk to my local farmers' market. I've lived in my town for 20 years and have never ventured to the farmers' market before. This is the first year that it is in walking distance and on my regular walking route. I took my camera along to see if I could find some of that elusive color.

Of course, I'm saving those photos for Thursday, but here are some photos of the local bounty.

Hope you will join Jennifer and me on Thursday...and let your friends know about this monthly blog hop. If you are new to the Search, click here for more information.

Update: For those of you having a difficult time searching for indigo...a project using your interpretation of the color is most welcome. Ersi is thinking about doing that this time round. Lisa did an amazing investigation of indigo for Roy I. Click here to see it.

Just realized this is my 333th post...wooohooo!


  1. Julie thank you for the blue fabric which has reached me.
    I still haven't found any indigo this month but i'll find something before next week.

    1. So glad that the fabric made it to you. Hope you enjoy using it. Indigo is so tough for me...think I might be fudging it a bit this week!

  2. The adjective 'elusive' should probably be paired forever with the noun 'indigo'. I haven't been able to find any indigo nearby and my day job makes excursions impossible so, if I can find the time, I'll just paint some indigo abstractions and post them for the challenge. Looks like you had a wonderful time at the farmer's market, the shots are beautiful!

    1. Indigo abstracts sound fabulous! I did have fun at the farmer's market. Had to limit my purchases though as I had a 35 min walk back and most of it up hill!
