Mauvelous

#CYW

Maybe, you would call it purple – but there’s definitely

a shade or two of pink hiding in this colour

unless you were looking at it really close up –

very few would succeed to match it up

except of course the guys or girls at the wallpaper warehouse – who

like mixing up the reds blues and yellows

of course you spot its pinkish hues up by fellow plants

up in the garden

shades of pink popping up the yellows, purples and blues

Violet Red

#coloryourworld #cyw #reds #violetred

Salford 10th April 2017

 

The tussle between the shades of red

began as they fought it out on the painters palette

ballet of an artistic nature

started at opposite ends of the rainbow

The bluer shade he stood his ground

as artists painted the flowers he’d found

but as pigment scarlet to pallet was fed

the cold shade turned a more warmer red

as red-violet flowers changed colours in bed

to a host of new flowers of violet red

Purple

Purple

Perhaps best seen in the bedding plants

Under the trees in the garden

Red meeting blue – depending on the amounts

Producing a variety of shades from

Lilac (a Light shade) and Lavender to Royal purple (a more darker shade)

Each with their own character and use
