Celebrating Colour

Spontaneous sharing and celebration of colour. Enjoy!


This photo is from the Mere Colours post published by Joanne Koo of Singapore yesterday on her blog Pot Gardening. She took this photo while at an exhibition called For Better Endings, New Beginnings, an art exhibition by Yellow Ribbon Project that was held at the Singapore Art Museum II in October 2017.

At the Yellow Ribbon Project Facebook Page they shared a post from Singapore Art Museum showing a photo of the curators and said: “These curators make weekly visits to Changi Prison and Changi Women’s Prison to guide inmate artists in their creative processes.”

The annual Yellow Ribbon Community Art Exhibition is presented by the Singapore Prison Service, in partnership with the Singapore Art Museum.

Please note: The very last photo in today’s post is also by Joanne Koo and taken at the same Exhibition

From Indigo – Fermentation Vat by Micky V. Schoelzke, on his blog L’Atelier de Micky, published June 29, 2017.

On the left, a french merino skein (2 baths of over an hour) and on the right, the same thing but with a tie and dye effect that works really well in these kind of vats. In the middle is a ball of very fine wool that spent a whole night in the vat after 2 shorter dips (about an hour).

[This is a photo I’d put aside for my previous Indigo Colour Post but Micky’s permission didn’t come through in time.]

This plant is grown in the Dunedin Botanic Gardens and I adore its tall pink flower spikes and silver foliage. I’ll do a post on this plant in the near future and I’ll share more photos with you then!


When gardening at our last property, I used to sometimes dig up one of these wonderful copper-coloured beetles. I sent the photo to experts who identified it as Megadromus meritus, one of the ground beetles (Family:Carabidae)

  1. Two perspectives today. Benjamin wants a colored pencil fence at my house and I admit it is tempting (not sure what the neighbors might think)! He is mesmerized by the ground beetle and wants one too. I am quite taken with the exquisite Dunedin Street Tree photo and the double rainbow. Joanne Koo’s photos are colorful indeed and the post very interesting. We are enjoying our visits with you. Thank-you!

    1. Its LOVELY to hear from you and Benjamin. A coloured pencil fence would be wonderful! The neighbours might love the idea too (and perhaps share the cost with you!). Do let me know how you get on. I was actually thinking of Benjamin when I included the pencil fence and I’m glad he was taken with the beetle. And its beautiful for me to hear that you enjoyed the other photos too! Thanks for sharing! Warm wishes to you both! Oh, the thing to say now is “Happy Thanksgiving” isn’t it? So I wish you both a VERY Happy Thanksgiving 🙂
