I had started fiddling around with ideas, writing a scrap here and there. About how we react to colours, all those theories etc. Then I saw pictures posted by a friend and realised that this is what has to be today. Colleen’s colours of Africa.
So many think of Africa as thick green jungle, greenish-brown bush or dusty deserts. It is good to also remember Africa’s most beautiful flowers. The far South does Spring in spectacular colour and variety. So here are some, stolen from her most beautiful pictures.

They are indeed beautiful photos, sidey. I’ll see what I can come up with. 🙂
I just went mad and stole them (I did tell her I’d done so)
Africa is indeed a very colourful place – in many ways 😉
Lovely photos Sidey!!
Thanks, a friend took them on a little trip, I stole them to share with everyone
What a stunning country it must be, Sidey. These are breathtaking.
That’s the Cape Province in spring, stunning
Wow, I so envy anyone who a. gets to be in such a cool place and b. can take decent photos!
she is a food blogger, so she is very competent and artistic with her camera
beautiful – especially the first
i haven’t made it down there at the right time. maybe next year?
Oh . . . Sidey posted photos! And lovely photos at that. 😀
I do put in pictures now and then 😉
They were just SO lovely I couldn’t resist. All wildflowers.
Here’s my contribution to the colour theme, sidey. 🙂
Love your selection of pics, spidey! and yes, flower season on the west coast. note to self, take some pics for spidey – yes?
of course take pics for someone called spidey and take some for me
hehe you sneaky sneak!
about time! tut tut
Will have to do until I get out there and snap some snaps
My late entry is colourful in more ways than one …
The bandy one is particularly spectacular – I had strips of a similar nature in a recent pic of cosmos, and they certainly catch the eye.
it is so amazing!
I hope you will excuse my late entry, SidevieW 🙂
How very lovely to pop in here and see these so proudly sitting on your blog. Thank you so much for sharing the photos sidey. And you are so much more than welcome. Big love and hugs, browniegirl xxx
Thanks for your generosity, so we could share their beauty with so many more people
PS I have never seen the flowers more magnificent than they are this season. We had wonderful winter rains so the show is spectacular. The colors amazing, you don’t know where to look because you want to be able to look everywhere all at once so that you don’t miss anything! A trip worth doing! xx
Nice theme from you, I just read from my blogger friend @Adinparadise. Another time I wanted to follow the theme 😛 Regards.
Green with envy here. Because of drought conditions this past summer we were robbed of the big sweeping landscapes of green for the most part, spring green is now just a distant memory to cling onto. But we have fall colour in the future. Then there is that other colour after fall colour, Snow White an her dwarfs.
I suppose most who live as I, somewhere far away from the continent think in the ‘brown’ or ‘greenish brown’ when thinking of Africa. But I have always thought of it as colourful, well I knew it had to have colour -the colour in the textiles and designs a give away, not everyone believes what they read, unless they read and seen it here that is.
The Cape has beautiful spring, then dry summer and wet winter. Up here we have golden brown winter and green summer
