Indigo

Indigo paint powder – image from wikipedia

#cyw #indigo

It’s a colour known for its position on the rainbow

nestled between its brother , blue and its sister, violet

definately making a statement on the home furnishings front

in fabrics, curtains, sofas and carpets

garments too – brought to life by this deep dark purply blue

only – don’t call it blue – its got its own character

Inchworm

Salford, Saturday 28th March 2020

For one saturday only – a reblog…..I would have taken the Nikon out to see if i could spot the odd one of these mooching round the city parks flowers but with the global bug lockdown….i’m sharing this one from last year.

In time – you’ll become a wonderful thing

Noted for the wonderful patterns on your wing

Caterpillar family – small you may be

Hoping to sleep in the best of the tree

When you are little – you cannot be seen

Out eating the leaves of the trees whilst you’re green

Remaining on trees till you start to take flight

Making small kids smile from morning through night

Hot Magenta

#CYW #HotMagenta

Salford Street sign – in Hot Magenta

Its not what you’d call a subtle colour

and it couldn’t be called pink or purple

a fiery marriage where red meets blue

but mother nature seems to like

using their off spring to bring a bit

of eye catching colour to the garden

look around you’ll see it every where else too

in signs, on walls and in windows

the future’s bright – the future’s …. Magenta

Green

#cyw #green

Tree in green , created by inky at the toolshed

Grown by mother nature

Rampant forests in shades light and dark

Exciting combinations of Yellow and Blue

Envelope the land through the trees

Nice at any time – but particularly christmas

Green-Yellow


#CYW #Green-Yellow

There’s something about your shade

you could be a fresh lemon, or a zesty lime on the canvas

the artist just can’t decide,

for the fruit in the bowl can be your colour while it ripens up

turning yellow or green when its ready for eating

Green!

4th March 2020

The place where blue meets yellow

crafting colours seen in the most vibrant of gardens

lawns and evergreen trees line the garden path

being a canvas for other colours in front of the house

and yet you could paint the perfect picture

with the various shades of leaf, from tree or flower alike

Grey

Sunday 1st March

#CYW #Grey

A Dalek from doctor who on the side of the trafford side of the quays....sans color....in black and white

Gone is the colour from the photograph

Reds , blues and greens

Escaped from the page, and

Yet – the shades of black and white, make the image more definitive

Golden

#CYW #Gold

There’s nothing better than a summer sky

warm coloured tones of

corn or wheat growing in the farmers field

or maybe the thought

of sinking your toes into warm golden sands

before dipping them in the sea

breakfast dinner or tea – wonderous eggs

dipped with bread soldiers

for an afternoon feast

Furry Bear

#Cyw #Fuzzywuzzybrown

Sat by his cave , somewhere in the zoo

a relative of your old pal – winnie the pooh

climbing his branches , carefully placed

and giving his luncheon a bit of a taste

looks out at the crowd like it’s a TV

and then he goes off – in search of honey

Forest Green

#CYW #ForestGreen

For years you’ve seen this glorious colour

out in the wilds beyond your door

rolling hills and valleys

encapsulated in it by

swathes of green grass and

trees as far as the view will take it

Grown from a simple cutting

reaching up high to the nearest cloud

everyone enjoys walking among them

each looking about to see which animal enjoys the

nuts and berries grown from the branches
