This month we are looking for Brown. The colour of Mother Earth.

More local browns – this time mainly barns

What browns can you find in your world?

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

  1. I especially like that last shot. Stone buildings or structures are always a winner in my book. Some places in the US you wouldn’t be able to use earth as a “brown” entry. When I grew up in Nebraska, the soil was dark black and so fertile. You could just dig into it, plant, and everything grew. Here in Arizona, we have what’s called caliche and it’s very much like cement! It is brown, though. 🙂


    1. Ah, yes, earth can be many colours and types. My daughter has clay soil where she lives, wet in winter and baked hard in the summer.

    1. All will be revealed soon PP. It is a much more cheerful colour, but I have been astonished at how many delightful browns have been found this month. Thanks for your lovely Aussie natives.
