As with most Diamine inks, both flow and behave well. As you can see, Meadow has more yellow undertones whilst Apple Glory has blue undertones.

Thank you very much! What scanner did you use? I have had difficulty showing the difference between the two greens. You have done a great job. Also, may I please ask which brown did you use? It is a lovely brown!

Thank you Fuchsiaprincess! I used a Kodak ESP 3250 all in one printer, scanner and copier. I was quite surprised that it managed to pick up the difference and quite pleased with the scan. I used Diamine Macassar in a Lamy Al Star with a fine nib :)

PS - you have beautiful hand-writing :thumbup:


Thank you so much! That is such a compliment coming from you, as I love your penmanship! :blush:

Excellent review Vistafan!
Early on the Apple Green was suggested for the 2012 green Safari. Then Meadow appeared!
It's a very friendly vibrant green.

More green, pea green with envy at your beautiful handwriting.

More reviews - please.

No problem, at all :)

Thank you pen2paper! I think the Apple Glory does match the 2012 Safari well but I prefer Meadow's yellow undertones :) Thank you for the nice comments about my handwriting! :) I hope to post some more comparisons soon.

Thanks Flake. I hope you find this review useful in gauging the difference between Meadow and Apple Glory.

Apple glory is such a lovely shade, Meadow is a little too bright for me, thanks so much for the review!

Apple glory is more subdued than Meadow, but I love the yellow undertones of the latter :)
