ORANGE:

YELLOW:
Rainbow - Yellow

GREEN:

BLUE:
Rainbow - Blue

INDIGO:

I know I will probably be in trouble for posting all 7, but they are small, Mitch, very small *smile* 


 Have fun enjoy. 
 I will be back later to look at your lovely colours. 

 Lots of Love Marianne

  6. Hi Marianne!! Many thanks for hosting. Hope you don't mind I tinkered a little bit with the wording on your post. A wonderful theme, and a super collection of photos to kick us off!! Love all the fine cobwebs on the red bud. That's a magnificent orange plant, what is it? Looks related to the 'aloe' family. Beautiful little yellow bird, I think this is my fave shot of your photos in this post. Something's a-foot in the garden in your 'green' shot!! LOL. Great shot of the little predator in the 'blue' photo. Lovely indigo hydrangea :-))

    1. Not a problem, Mitch, I would have been surprised if you had not fiddled with it ;-)

      Thank you very much for your kind comments, yes it is an Aloe Ferox flowering, also called the bitter aloe, no idea why, I have never tried to eat the leaves, but they are used for traditional medicinal purposes.

      The little yellow bird is Vinkie, our little rescue weaver bird, if you look closely you can see he is ringed on the right leg.

      The green boots were shot at a local nursery, such an interesting little display they had put up.

      The red bud is a rosehip. :-)
