Tulip – Weekly Prompts: Flamboyant Red

This weekend GC and SueW have chosen the following as the theme for their challenge.

December’s highlighted color challenge on Susan and my site is FLAMBOYANT RED.

Well there is not actually that much Red to choose from in my archives, mainly flowers like the one below.

When I was a young boy Red used to be my favourite colour, it is hard to say what it is now, but probably Blue, but it does sway either side on the colour wheel to Purple and Green.

Why and when did my colour tastes change I wonder?  I actually remember hating Blue, I would never pick the blue pieces in a game!  However just like my multicoloured clothes wearing wife, I would have to say my wardrobe looks like a rainbow, a muted rainbow, but all colours are represented.

Fiery flower – One word Sunday Challenge: Fire

This week Debbie has challenged us with the following:

Welcome to One Word Sunday, and over to all of you to join the challenge with your own fire post.

So here is my take for this week, I might have called it ‘burning bee’ but thought it might scare people off looking 🙂

Vanessa Atalanta – Weekly Prompts: Close

This weekend GC and SueW have chosen the following as the theme for their challenge.

Close-up, close to, close shave, close off, close the door! Contrasting definitions of the one spelling.

This is one of those words in the English language that varies in definition by the way it is pronounced. Close ( clothes) the door cannot be confused with a close (klos) shave.

Well so much for your linguistic lesson for this week. 😀

Which one will you choose? We can’t wait to find out!

Interpret this challenge in any way you choose; photographs, a piece of writing, or rhyme. Whatever your choice, have fun with it!

So a ‘close-up’ of a Red Admiral about to ‘close’ its wings, well it may have been opening them but I claim artistic licence.  I might have cropped it a bit ‘close-r’ but I did not realise how scary their faces were!

Red rose and raindrops – A Photo a Week Challenge: Raindrops.

This week Nancy has challenged us with the following:

With the rain yesterday, I had fun capturing the raindrops on my tulips. Rain can be tricky to photograph, but raindrops on objects are a lot of fun. The give things a fresh feeling.

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO (OR MORE) FEATURING RAINDROPS.

It had just been raining, it rained nearly every day during our visit to Dartmoor that year.

Bug, Beetle, Fish – One Word Sunday Challenge – Red

This week Debbie at ‘Travel with intent’ challenges us with:

Welcome to One Word sunday – over to all of you to join the challenge with your own red post.

Well I could have used one of the many photos of Red roses that I have, especially with valentines day approaching.  However I felt compelled to wander around the house and select some red objects to produce this result.
