One lovely part of spring is the return of colour, something that we can miss over the winter. Some flowers are particularly bright and colourful, and can really lift your spirits.
No progress on the Kaleidoscope Blanket CAL this week, but I have finished my lovely rainbow shawl/scarf. I’m really happy with how it looks. Someone at work said it looked joyful, and that is exactly the right description 🙂 Here it is on Monday, when I’d just gone over the half-way point: I finished itContinue reading “On the Hook, 15/2/20”
Not much progress on the Kaleidoscope CAL this week. I’ve have a total of 7 1/2 part 3 triangles now, so I’ve only done 4 1/2 this week. Mainly due to being exhausted and kind of broken from last weekend’s exertions and a very busy week at work. Some evenings I didn’t crochet at all.Continue reading “On the Hook, 8/2/20”
I finished my 36 squares for the Kaleidoscope CAL this week: I got them all done and dusted (including ends) last Sunday. So proud to have got them all done. Of course then it was time to get working on part 2 again. Quite slow progress as I’ve only managed to get 8 of theContinue reading “On the Hook, 1/2/20”
vivid producing powerful feelings or strong, clear images in the mind (of a colour) intensely deep or bright. I was thinking about this word as I went for my walk today, and was looking out for some vivid colours… How about the vivid yellows, pinks and greens in the meadow? Or perhaps the vivid bluesContinue reading “Vivid Nature”
The weather outside is awful today – really windy and pouring with rain, so I’m looking indoors for photo opportunities. I’ve been crocheting again, so I wanted to share this colourful flower circular creation. It’s not finished yet – it will be a square cushion cover at some point. Perhaps I’ll share again when I’mContinue reading “To brighten up a dull day”
A quick set of photos taken from just outside the front door, put together in HDR Efex to allow the sky and leaves to both show up clearly. It’s a little bit odd because of a lot of ghosting as the leaves were blowing but I think it captures the scene quite well.
Not really on fire of course, but the colours of these flowers are like fire in the beautifully planted Lower Gardens in Bournemouth. The Upper Gardens are more wild and lovely in a different way but in the Lower Gardens its more formal with neatly planted beds. The colours were looking vibrant a couple ofContinue reading “Gardens on Fire”
Earlier this month this little guy came to visit. I just realised I hadn’t blogged him. He was a very small and very colourful wasp – a Ruby-Tailed Wasp. We discovered him on the kitchen window – hence the weird reflections in the double glazing. The following day there were 2 of them on theContinue reading “Ruby-Tailed Wasp”
I had a bunch of lovely colourful flower photos waiting to be blogged and so when I saw the Daily Post’s Weekly Photo Challenge was colour (or color!) I thought they’d be perfect. I’m so glad to finally see some colour brightening up this extended wintry weather. Some of these were taken back home inContinue reading “Weekly Photo Challenge: Colour”
