Naming colours

Flanders Moss NNR

With the turning of the year, the colour schemes of Flanders Moss are spectacular at the moment. A close look reveals the flowering heather, the leaves of blaeberries, bog asphodel and bog myrtle, and cranberries are glowing like embers and the fully hydrated sphagnum set a light. I think that paint manufacturers and their fancy names could get some inspiration from a bog at this time of year.

Asphodel orange, myrtle yellow, blaeberry cerise, calluna mauve, fallax green, magellanicum red, cranberry scarlet anyone?
