hanging off the arms of the tree

a sign of things to come

pink and white blooms send a message

to all who walk around it

cheering as the children play

the apples šŸŽĀ are comingĀ on their way!


Things with the letter C


In response to

Starting off with a Colourful one, taken at a session of the photography group Basic Clicks – Six Colourful Carrots on Blue Canvas!


here’s a couple of interesting CutleryĀ pieces – the first is of four forks against a wall, Ā – i liked the shadows created in this pic.


Combination of ideas here, with a twist – Spirals of Cutlery , set on canvas.


Still life shot of various vegetables set out on a slate Cheeseboard,Ā some onions (white and red), a tomato, a cut CabbageĀ and the return of one of those CarrotsĀ we saw earlier



Now fellow wordpressors might have seen this one before, but as its cees photochallenge, i thought i’d put it on here – not for the wonderful bridge (that’s the wrong letter folks!!!) but for those fluffy white marshmallow clouds , over looking the quayside at Salford, attached to the Manchester ship Canal.

Blue flower

Last but not least, here’s a close up of a cornflower – i like this one because of the colour!



delicate flower šŸŒŗ

hanging off the fruit tree branch

sign of fruit coming ?


petals of pastel

sway in the wind of morning

announcing tree growth


pretty petals float

onto grasses of light green

painting nice pictures





I love it when the apple trees are in bloom

pink-white blossoms hang around the green

they give the tree a certain appeal

and look as if they’re dancing in a gentle breeze

drifting slowly in the air

gently floating onto carpets of green

creating colourful patterns on the front lawn


Jazzberry Jam

Salford, 14th April


A tale of #flowers and #jazzberryjam for the #coloryourworld challenge.


Colour of the Garden Hibiscus

it’s making a bit of a noise

but for fans of this wonderful flower

its a noise they all enjoy

attracting the birds and the butterflies

raising with visitors a smile

who will spend some time in the garden

enjoying the flowers for a while


Pink Carnation

#Coloryourworld #cyw #pinkcarnation #acrostic #pinks #flower

11th April 2017


Could it be

A reason why I never can forget you

Real beauty – enveloped in a dress the colour of that flower

Never forgotten that spring night after

An attempt to grab your attention

Tomorrow, they say – is another day, but

I can’t get the vision of your smile from my head

One day – the fairytale might come true, but its

Noted you’re wearing that flower tonight

A mix up in the paint factory

tween two pots of paint

led to a discussion in

the art class


Blue and red merged

into purple – or pink ?

a colour for red grapes ?

it made students think


Politically Neutral – Neither Red or Blue

the Greens and the Liberals loved it

but in the city they pondered

over the banners in street


Kids reproducing –

a colourful scene

with new shade going nicely

with splashes of green


Reminders of flowers

out by garden lawn

transferred to canvas

with ideas – reborn
