Weekly Photo Challenge: COLORFUL, 1

Well, seems to me the HOT rubric last week inspired a powerful lot of COLORFUL photos, especially flowers. But we’ll do our best with the nuances —

And start off gently, with some more — flowers! But this time the hot ones — scarlet and yellow nasturtiums — are set off by the cool blue of — I don’t know what they’re called. Daisy-like, aster-like, if anybody knows, clue me in! But meanwhile, here they are in all their colorful glory:

    I love nasturtiums – they take me back to my childhood! They are so bright and fresh.

    Gorgeous color combination! I had to chuckle because it reminds me of our friendship – the hot colors are you and there I am, all pastelly and common in the background 😉

    Great color contrast — the asters contrasting with the nasturtiums. Lovely.

  6. My MiL used to have these in sandwiches apparently! Brilliant colour!

      The nasturtiums, not the asters! Yes, there are edible flowers, but one doesn’t often see them being eaten —
      Your post triggered a vivid memory from quite a while ago. We were at a somewhat awkward dinner with another couple and a recently divorced friend who had brought his new date, a very VERY young woman. As we were all eating and chatting, the very VERY young woman reached over to the centerpiece, casually plucked a nasturtium? a violet? and ate it.
      Generation gap? Or your MiL’s generation meeting the DiL-age generation, leaving us lumpen in between????

      Anyway, thanks for the memory. And I’ve looked at your blog, you Hugger you! It’s great!
      (But the tentativeness of latter-day huggers, I am one, is not so much What do I feel, as I’m not sure how much you’ll welcome my hug. It’s no accident I named my main blog Touch2Touch)

      Thanks so much for visiting!

    A lovely sea of nature… is this patch on your property somewhere? If so, you are a lucky lady. 🙂

      AAAAAAGH! I hate always to be referencing food, but there it is, it’s my life!
      No, it’s not on our property, which is running heavily to knotweed at this moment.
      It’s outside one of the world’s great bakeries, disguised as any old side of the road plain frame building: Bread Euphoria. And it is.
      They’ve got tubs and tubs and tubs planted with these gorgeous nasturtiums and the cool (in every sense) blue flowers. All this, and chocolate croissants too —

    Such a lovely photograph! For some reason, nasturtiums in the garden always remind me of playful, colourful children.
