This month we will be looking for Pink. A delicate colour that means sweet, nice, playful, cute, romantic, charming, feminine, and tenderness, is associated with bubble gum, flowers, babies, little girls, cotton candy, and sweetness.

“Anything is possible with sunshine and a little pink” ~ Lilly Pulitzer

What pinks can you find in your world?

This month we will be looking for Green. Green signals new life in spring, fresh green leaves, the shoots of new bulbs emerging from the soil. It is a cool and soothing colour, bringing us moisture and shade.

“Meanwhile the mind,
from pleasures less,
Withdraws into
its happiness…
Annihilating all that’s made
To a green thought
in a green shade

~ Andrew Marvell

It’s easy to find shades of green in nature, but what else can you discover?

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?

“There are painters who
transform the sun
to a yellow spot,
but there are others who with the help of their art and
their intelligence
transform a yellow spot
into the sun”

~Pablo Picasso

Remember to look for yellow in less obvious places. It may not be the focus of your photo, but it should certainly catch the eye.

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!
