We’ve done blue, we’ve done pink, and now that fall is truly here in the snail garden, I feel it’s time to devote a postcard post to orange. Such a quirky color. People tend to either love it or avoid it. Orange makes a statement wherever it appears, especially in the natural world.Postcard of Christo’s illustration and map collages for his project The Gates,open to the public in Central Park February 12-27, 2005. Sent by the Snail Family’s friend and whimsical illustrator Antonie Becker. Grandma and Grandpa Snail then sent me a fabric swatch from the installation which I keep with the postcard.
