  • Could someone elaborate a little more about the actual colour of Mallory Kay's beards?
Many of the Mallory Kay's images (through googling), are displaying white beards, yellow tipped at the start (of the beard), then blue/violet tipped at the ends.

I woud appreciate any clarification so that I can make note of description in my personal 'Iris Database.' Thank you - Nicky smile -- MainNickyAllenz - 04 Nov 2012
