ABC Wednesday 'A'
A as in Appleblossom, AZURE and Anthroposophist.
This pictures is taken far, far from the Côte d'Azur it is taken on a warm and lovely day in May in Åkerby (Uppland). The pink appleblossom goes well with the Azure blue sky I think. By the way have you started with the pruning of your apples yet? Or are you doing like the Anthroposophists does, using the J.A.S pruning method? Generally I do, but if there is very much that has to be done I take both methods that year. Early spring and J.A.S pruning.
Azure is a blue color on the HSV color wheel at 210 degrees. Azure is the hue that is halfway between blue and cyan. Its complementary color is orange. Azure is a near synonym for the color blue. Commonly it refers to a bright blue, resembling the sky on a bright, clear day.
The term azure derives from the Persian لاژورد (lazhward), which was the name of a place in modern Turkestan known for its deposits of lapis lazuli (“stone of lazhward”). The word was adopted into Old French by the twelfth century. From the French it was adopted into English as a near synonym for "blue". The first recorded use of azure as a color name in English was in 1374. wikipedia Azure
