Speaking of red, I was surprised to see that H. Valentino has not sold out. That looks like a nice one. I see in the ADS handbook Shogun and Valentino are both listed as RD24. In your garden, are they the same shade?

I scanned all of the color charts but was disappointed by the scans. I wanted my wife to place the color chart over the screen and color correct the screen to each chip. That would take many hours and if your monitor has different settings or is just a bit different than mine, they would be off. I held the color chip Red 24 over my monitor and changed the color until they matched.

We like to place a sign on our porch that says: We are in the garden. Really, we are always in the garden.
