CYW: Cotton Candy and Dandelion


I just captured this hibiscus in  the animal shelter garden yesterday. I’ve never seen one before with this distinctive coloration and just my luck that it should happen to meet this week’s prompt in Color Your World! Cotton candy and dandelions…

Weaned Off Green: Color Your World, March 4, 2018


Weaned off Green


Green with envy, soylent green.
Green’s a color I find mean.
When mold takes over a machine,
you can bet that it is green.
Green clogs up locks and fouls my nose.
Leaves a nostril when it blows.
Green is such a rank beginner
that it cannot be a winner.
Green is nasty. Green takes hold.
The color of algae and mold.
It invades when you’re not looking.
Raids the fridge to ruin your cooking.
With other colors you can be friends,
from the beginning, or make amends.
But green is stubborn, nasty, greedy.
If green had eyes, they would be beady.
So if you’re looking for a hue
that will be good friends with you.
Pick yellow or aquamarine.
But I’d advise you don’t pick green!


Thanks to Lynda Early for the prompt of “green” given to me in our writer’s group for our 20 minute writing.  I seem to no longer be able to write without a prompt.

CYW: Robin’s Egg Blue



Luckily, two friends have chosen to wear robin’s egg blue blouses recently.  The sculpture photo was taken in Puerto Vallarta. Not sure what created the ring effect, but I like it! Click on any photo to enlarge all.
