Here are couple of pictures of Xanadu Paisley that I just received. Please excuse the dirt and backround noise.

Regards
Jerry

So, do the brownish show up now as a result of a long hot summer, or is this an 'always' look? It's interesting. did you use a flash? I'm just feeling like it needs different lighting to get the real effect or something ? Is it me? I've never seen this one before but curious. :D

The brown is from Brian and Virginia's water. It's iron stains :-).. I use to get them at the farm we lived at before from all the iron in the well water :wink:

I think part of the brown is just plain dirt, I guess I should have washed it before taking the picture. Some is also from hard water and end of summer "wear and tear" I would guess.

Well, I went to the hosta Library, took a look and still can't decide if I like it. I rather like the pics posted here better than those on the library, but it just hits me funny. Not sure what that means myself really. :lol: Still interesting. :D

I guess I would have to say that it looks too similar to HVX for me to fall in love with it... :(
