The colour of Me

I enjoy the colour I see everyday in my life.

Each morning I begin my day eating the colour of fruit: depending on the season I may eat red, yellow, orange, and even green.

I appreciate the colour used by my children when they create their artwork: it is the colour we use to decorate our space or even our albums.

One of life’s pleasures is receiving the gift of flowers and appreciating them  everyday in your home. The varied colours brighten up a room and bring joy to my soul.

Walking in a market, I absorb the burst of colour as I shop for fruit and vegetables.

The colour used by artists when being creative brings me pleasure as I admire the end result of many hours of work.

I enjoy creating colourful things as well – which is what I did with my children last year at Easter time.

I admire the colour that nature brings us. Not only in flowers, fruit and vegetables but also in the beauty of birds.

Though no bird I have seen is as beautiful as the strutting male peacock:

I do enjoy the colour that surrounds me – even when I am eating at the dinner table.

As for wearing colour, I often do so (though I do admit to days of wearing stark black).

  1. I am definitely a color person and literally like all colors, with the exception of clothes. Peach or mauve do not work for me, but I love both on other people. The colors in my garden are my summer palate! Love color!


  2. Enjoyed the post. The picture of the child art reminded me so much of the art that our kids in primary school. Such a pity, that somewhere in the transition between childhood and being an adult, the capability of being so unrestricted and just let go with colour and creativity, has been lost.


  3. You chose a great way to end a post about color! … and your peacock pic got the biggest wow! Thanks for reminding us the importance and role of all the colors that grace our lives each day.


  4. Very inspiring and beautiful post, and all photos very well captured – in fact I don’t believe that I have a favorite color – colors are power for our minds, isn’t it right – by the way a very cute portrait… 🙂


  5. All I can say is that you’re inspirational. You did not show me how much colour there is in life; you rather inspired the aesthetics that actually everyone has inside. The long thread of comments is a proof, if you ever dare deny my theory! 😉
    Thank you, Colline. Thank you so much!


  6. The colors of fall are outstanding this year with their vibrant reds and deep orange and brilliant yellow hues in my garden. Although we have had some very cold nights, many of my annuals and one of my late fall perennials has continued to bloom with bright yellow, deep velvety purple and deep dusty rose in my back garden.

    Leaves from the surrounding larger leafy trees have begun to fall to the ground and create a different look to the entire garden. I should rake them up and put them in their rightful place inside a disposable leaf bag, but I think I’ll just enjoy there haphazard appearance and bright colour on the ground for a while. It has a comforting, cozy, un-manicured and natural look I really like just like the countryside.

    Think I’ll enjoy these fall colours for a little while longer.


    1. I love that you are leaving the leaves on the ground. The coloured leaves create a beautiful carpet that is pleasing to the eye. We often walk past a house that has a Maple tree in the front and I loves the appearance of the different hues on the front lawn and the surrounding environs.


  7. Love your portrait Colline! I am a more neutral person myself. I love seeing colour on other people though! And I like surrounding myself with brilliant colour accents 🙂
