October CMMC colour orange or light green

Cee Neuner’s topic for this week’s CMMC (Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge) is for the colour orange or light green. Do visit Cee’s blog to see more photos and links to other participants’ entries for this challenge.

There was a scarecrow trail in our village last weekend to raise funds for the local primary school. Some of the entries were very colourful. Bill and Ben the Flowerpot Men have orange bodies and light green watering cans. Positioned on a busy corner it was difficult to snap them safely.

Bill and Ben with ‘Little Weed’

In case the children’s television programme from British TV has passed you by, in the 1950s Bill and Ben were made of flowerpots. Their friend ‘Little Weed’ was a flower growing between them. They lived in a garden. More modern series of the programme have also been made.

September CMMC letter O in the middle of the word

For Cee Neuner’s Midweek Madness Challenge (CMMC) this week a photo of something with O in the middle of the word is required. Flowers are allowed. I have chosen a photo of purple loosestrife, which was taller than my 5 foot nothing! It is still flowering, but this photo was taken a week ago.

September pick a topic CMMC

Cee Neuner’s Midweek Madness Challenge this week is to pick a topic from the photo posted as inspiration. Don’t forget to have a look at it!

The colours in the photo include grey and brown. On a walk along the cliffs we spotted some beach art using pebbles and seaweed. The wind was strong enough to blow me about as I attempted to take photos using the zoom facility on my camera. The one I am posting here is the best of the batch I took.

Pebbles on the beach look predominantly grey.  A spiral ending in an arrow outlined in red sandstone pebbles and brown seaweed had been constructed.
