Life in Colour

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

This month we are looking for Brown. The colour of Mother Earth. What browns can you find in your world?

Beach Browns

I’m sure most people don’t think of beaches together with the colour brown – we associate a beach with golden or white sand, blue sky, blue sea and brightly coloured beach accessories. So it is an interesting experiment to go to a familiar place with a different perspective in mind.

Friday Flashback #1

This is the first post of 2017 from my flower blog “Earth Laughs in Flowers” which I ran from 2013 – 2020. Since then it has been in hibernation awaiting travels to new gardens. Which didn’t happen last year for obvious reasons and may well not happen this year, though I remain hopeful.

“I have been showcasing my new garden (2016) on my Cornwall blog this year, but for you lovely people who follow me on this garden blog here is a review of some of the delights that I found growing in my garden this year.


So thank you once again for all your visits and likes and comments and I wish everyone a happy and healthy new year xx”

This post is a contribution to Fandango’s Flashback Friday. Have you got a post you wrote in the past on this particular day? The world might be glad to see it – either for the first time – or again if they’re long-time loyal readers.

And may 2021 be a much better year for everyone – happy gardening!

Travel Photo #10

Christmas Collage – New Zealand

Su Leslie (aka Zimmerbitch) invited me to join her and other bloggers posting a travel photo a day for ten days. The deal is I also invite someone else each day to join in, and ping-back to my post. But as several bloggers I know are already busy with the challenge I am going to resort to inviting “anyone who feels like joining in”

This one is especially for you Su. Have a lovely Christmas and a happy new year 🎉🌹💐🌲✨

Calling Time

Some Time Squares that didn’t feature during December’s Squares challenge hosted by the lovely Becky.

At the beginning of this challenge I didn’t think I would have very much to post, but surprisingly I did find a number of clocks among my archives along with a little bit of thinking outside the box. Or should that be square?

I even saw this one (above) last week on a trip into Penzance. And I am sure I will be seeing clocks all over the place for some time to come.

I don’t know if Becky will continue to run her square challenges during this year, but if she does maybe she will alter the timing so the months don’t coincide with her busiest periods. Thank you once again Becky for a wonderful challenging month! And thank you for popping in to view my squares. Your visits are very much appreciated.
