It’s a long time since I’ve put together a colour post – my admiration for recent white posts by others has motivated me to do another. First up is Ted Jennings from South Carolina, USA because it was his fabulous photo of a Great Egret arriving back at its nest that wow-ed me and made me want to put this together.
Links: under each photo is a link to the original post. Right at the end of my post I’ve listed the names of each featured blogger – click on the name to visit their blog home page.

Note: Keir’s latest post of April 21, 2019 beautifully features white, crimson and purple Pulsatilla. FYI Keir responds to comments but at his new site I’ve found I have to go and look for his answers as they don’t come through to my notifications.
Susan Rushton | Six on Saturday from Arley Hall Gardens
I’ve chosen to feature a white rhododendron from Susan’s post. There are also photos of Erythronium ‘White Beauty’, white honesty, white blossom, white Fritillaria meleagris and white borage – very beautiful selection of white flowers!

Damien B. Donnelly | White Lies
While I was moving house Damien was publishing a whole series of poems with specific colour associations – I haven’t read all of them yet but I’m enjoying the catch-up! This post begins with his photo of a white rose followed by an intriguing poem about white lies – truth, lies and what lies in between (and anyway, where do you draw the line?)

mabelfrancis | Happy Easter
mabelfrancis opens her Easter post with “a few photographs of the celebration of my first Easter in France”. I was amazed to find this photo “lamb for slaughter”. The post is not white-themed, in this instance I’ve chosen to highlight a single image.
In response to questions from me, Mabel explained that the lamb was bought from a pastry shop. See my update below the photo for further information

Additional note after publishing (from Liz): I was really fascinated by this lamb so if you’d like to know more about it I’ll give you a link for a page I found that shows the mold and gives a recipe with photos of the steps involved (the link generates an English translation). Lammele, Lamala or Osterlammele, made in Alsace and in some regions of eastern France.
Click on this LINK and when the page loads click on “the lammele recipe”.
