Not often I include a pun in my haiku. Many appologies. The field of safflower actually reminds me of the field of rapeseed that we grow in Sweden. I would like to suggest that for a summer kigo :-).

  1. the use of “dye” made this piece fun and colorful (wink)
    the yellow and blue (two of my favorite colors) was my favorite part.

  2. Pun away anytime. I visited a wildlife refuge last year where they showed the plants that were used to create natural dyes. Very interesting.
