Light green moments

Saturday morning, and I’m pondering the next shade of colour in fees fun foto challenge

lime green

now you say lime green to me, and my artistic thoughts go directly to the fruit bowl

lemon-lime-paint

But limes nowadays seem much darker in tone than what I’d normally associate them with….you would have to split  them open to get the colour you were looking for

But a quick scan of the kitchen cupboards soon reveals this light green colour.   In a packet of custard, or perhaps pasta or even strawberry jelly (strange but true). For the doubters it’s the one in the green packet…

lime jelly ? An acquired taste.

and outside in the garden, the trees have more of a lime green colour to them than the actual shade of a dark green limeimage.jpg

look again… and the outside of the lime is hiding in plain sight…

A Food acrostic – not to be confused with the game you throw a ball at 🙂

 

Sealed up in the big plastic bag

Kept in your travel case

Is a multitude of flavour – A rainbow of taste

Tastebuds tingle, at the very

Thought of flavours

Like Lemon, strawberry, Lime, Orange and Blackcurrant

Each little sweet, exploding with flavour

Sensational

Juicy

A lemon, sliced – at Food for thought, BASIC, Salford – B.F Kirkham 2017

 

The humble lemon,

like its siblings the orange and lime

each segment is full of cells just

bursting with juice

as the fruit knife cuts through the peel to the zesty core

each cell in its way bursts – releasing

fresh lemon zest into the air

while drops of lemon fall onto fresh marble

Electric lime

Zingy little fruit,

full of zest and flavor

and powerful punch

 

perfect , placed in a jelly

sparky flavours contained in

a porcelain mould

 

Sparks of delight

pop off on the tongue

and your luminosity

 

Green for go ! your sign

the party power switches

are all turned on

 

Yellow

#Coloryourworld #Cyw #Yellow

I like the colour yellow,

like the way it appears in a sunny day

or a soft boiled egg at breakfast

so many colours depend on it

we’d have bluegrass on the lawn

and funny coloured sunflowers

and Citrus fruits ? No Orange, Lemon or Lime

So Have a Banana! and Rejoice!

this bright and colourful fellow,

The colour who makes Mustard Bite

yet makes Bananas and Custard Mellow

perhaps you might like to celebrate

with a Lemon meringue pie on your plate.

Burnt Orange

#Coloryourworld #Cyw #BurntOrange

I’ve never got my head around this

from Lancashire to Yorkshire, from Spain to Greece

I’d sit in amusement

as master chefs who made the grade,

cooking food as a show,  Practicing their trade

toasting a poor citrus slice – within an inch of its life

(and occasionally catching the chef – causing strife)

presented with fish or meat with salad on wood –

it never really tasted how it should

the foodanistas would praise it constantly on the net

but do the same things at home – No – i’d bet

instead they post a falsehood on twitter

as burnt citrus isn’t tasty – it’s really quite bitter!

Contrast

In response to the prompt :
Contrast

Fruitbowl

What can be more contrasting than a fully laden fruit bowl ?

The whole rainbow of colours are there from the dark reds of the red apples, plums, and grapes to the orange colours of the Oranges and Tangerines to Yellows of the Lemons and Pineapples and finally the green colours of the green grapes, apples and limes.

There is one colour lacking though…its lacking some blueberries and damsons…
