One word photo challenge: Maroon.

Some colours seem to be in abundance, everywhere I look, and are easy to fit memories and photos to.  Others are a bit more of a challenge.  Maroon, for me, definitely falls in the latter category. Initially, I was completely stumped.


Grass flowers. Like a field of feathers.

But I really love getting my brain (and my camera!) around the fantastic weekly colour challenge set by Jennifer Nichole Wells, so I was determined to find something!

As luck would have it, nature came to the rescue in astounding fashion.  I really do think that Henry Miller said it all when he observed that:

‘the moment one gives close attention to any thing, even a blade of grass it becomes a mysterious, awesome, indescribably magnificent world in itself’.

So with that in mind, it turns out that the grass isn’t always greener on the other side.  When you look at it really closely, sometimes it is green with a generous dollop of maroon! Who knew?!
