Cees Fun Foto Challenge…Soft and Pastel Colours


Rhododendrons are usually big and blousy oozing with bold colours….

But when they are more restrained their soft pastel colours just seem to have that added sparkle… a touch of class!


Just my suggestions for this weeks Cees Fun Foto Challenge – Soft & Pastel Colours…

Cees Fun Foto Challenge – White

Dahlia White Star

White is the colour (topic) nominated by Cee for this weeks Fun Foto Challenge…. though I do seem to remember a science teacher telling our class of 9 year olds that white is not a colour.

Nature seems to think differently with white adding a splash of colour to any flower border

But white is also the colour of Snow….. Now snow, that is something we seem to have avoided over the past few years.  Last year it did make a brief one day appearance…

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge – Yellow


Cee has stated that Yellow is this weeks topic for her Fun Foto Challenge.

So forgive me for going for the obvious subject…the Yellow of the Daffodils.

But with winter now trying to get in the door, I thought it would be nice to remind us that Spring will soon be here…. and with it some warm colours of flowers and sun.
