It’s surprising how many shades of green you can find when you’re not really looking
It was there in Leunig art at an exhibition in Healesville just up the road a bit from home
In beautiful stained glass windows – Rio Vista historic house Mildura. A bit further from home – right on the Vic/NSW state border
And on travels really far away from home Like in Hong Kong at Kowloon Park (2017)
Decorating windows and doors in the Old Town at Kavala – in Greece (2014)
On a little bit of whimsical advertising further away still on Fogo Island just off the northern coast of Newfoundland (2013)
Then there’s the green you can see on the road
Or in the paddock
It shows up well on different sorts of signage. For towns
For important companies
For necessary safety information
Travel up north and you’ll find a giant green tree frog on the giant Golden Gumboot. The big green board has loads of information about the local area
But this is the green I’m really looking forward to seeing again The ‘distance to’ sign at Proserpine telling me that after 4 days on the road there’s only 65km to go until I’ll see the green sign at the front gate of our Winter home 😊
Jude at Travel Worlds has a new photo challenge for this year (2021) entitled Life in Colour with a different colour chosen for each month. This month (February) the colour has been YELLOW…….one of my favourites 😊 It’s a bit like Sunday Selections (found here at Elephants Child) in that photos can be old or new, taken recently or a while ago, the difference being the chosen colour is featured. Also the use of the tag #colour2021 so she and others can find you. Jude (and others) have been posting weekly on Sundays but I’ll probably keep mine to the last Sunday only. Which is today!
I found some yellow wandering down the street – a lonely looking recycling bin. Must have been a Monday!
Just down the road from the school. No children in sight but I did find a Dandelion and Chinese Lantern. aka Taraxacum and Abutilon
Down the road a bit more and round the corner a sprawling mass of yellow Gazania making its way round another corner
And speaking of children – here’s one from many years ago. Two happy little vegemites enjoying the rain in their yellow macs’. Both now in their early 20s
Then there are these well known signs to look out for on the way to Rockhampton.
There’s also the one you don’t want to see
And you didn’t think I’d not include some yellow knitting. Complete with fancy mother of pearl buttons sewn on with matching yellow wool
