(A few weeks ago I did a post on colour: the colour I enjoy seeing in my life. I mentioned in the comments that I had so many photos to choose from that it was difficult to narrow the choice down. Christy at Poetic Parfait suggested I do another post to show the ones I had set aside. I decided to take her up on her suggestion.)
The colour of flowers always attracts my eye – no matter what colour they are, or where they have been planted.
The flowers may be swaying in the wind from a garden bed, or moving in the wind with the leaves of a tree.
Walking along the side walks, I often see planters filled with colour.
At times the planters are on ground – and at other times they are placed above my head.
I enjoy as well the colour found in the African art I see displayed in my country of birth.
The art can be found on wall murals and also on the small curios that tourists buy to take home as a memory of their trip.
When walking the streets in a third world country, you often find sidewalks alive with the colours of hawkers’ wares.
At times these wares are wrapped up colourfully and given as gifts to friends and family.
The tastiest colours are definitely the ones we see on our plates. When a plate is filled with a variety of colour, you can be sure that your meal contains a range of nutrients.
Often the colours found in the main meal are reflected in the colours found on our dessert plate:
Or even in the candy that one may reach for as a treat:
The more I look around me, the more I see colour. I am sure to do another post representing the colour of me.
What colours have you seen around you this week?
