Floral Rainbow

I’m not sure if it’s just a British thing but we have a little mnemonic for the colours of the rainbow: “Richard of York gave battle in vain”. That’s the phrase that has stuck in my mind since childhood, rather than the “Roy G. Biv” of this challenge. But whatever method you choose to remind yourself of the order, the colours are the same … so here’s my rainbow of flowers:

And finally a violet Violet! (What other flower could I choose?!)

  1. Great pictures. My favourite British mnemonic is for the planets: ‘Many volcanos erupt mulberry jam sandwiches under normal pressure’. I suppose that one’s out of date (which is a pity), though I hear Pluto may be reinstated as a planet this year. My fingers are crossed!
