Life in Colour

To find out more about this year’s photo challenge here on Travel Words, please read this post.

This month we will be looking for Yellow. A bright and happy colour and often associated with spring. The sun in the sky, heat and light. What yellows can you find in your world?

Colman’s is an English manufacturer of mustard and other sauces, formally based and produced for 160 years at Carrow, in Norwich, Norfolk. The plant closed its doors in July 2019. The last run of Colman’s mustard jars on the line replaced the “best before” date with the message “Norwich’s Last. By Its Finest. July 24th 2019”

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’ve never liked mustard but it’s good to see all the old branding. I could do with some of those miracle elixirs in my cupboard so I can self medicate if I get grouchy.

  2. How Wonderful to know there was a Coleman’s mustard museum, and dedicated shop! I do love their packaging, and have several beautiful old Coleman’s tins 🙂
    Also really interesting to know the original Norwich connection!

    1. Only from what the BBC says “Unilever is to switch its Carrow Works operations to Staffordshire and Germany – In May 2019 Unilever announced a long-term partnership with Condimentum’s new mustard and mint milling facility at the Norfolk Food Enterprise Park at Honingham Thorpe.”

      So it seems that there will be still some connection with the city.
