Nice review! Great green!! Likely my very most favourite green although green isn't my favourite colour of ink.

MIke :)

Interesting. Your scan shows Meadow looking much lighter than Kelly Green, which is the opposite of what I have seen in the samples of them that I have (in fact I found Kelly Green to be so light as to be almost illegible, which was a shame because it shades so gorgeously in all the review scans I've seen it in.

This is probably due to the Kelly Green sample being written with the Noodler's Flex, which is a very wet writer, and the Meadow sample being written with a dipped Serwex 77TR, which is a dry writer anyway. Checking the Meadow and Kelly Green reviews back to back in person, they're about the same in terms of lightness and darkness, but the Kelly Green is just so much brighter than Meadow. :)
