Not the original American tumbleweed, but weed I stumbled on in Spain – stumbleweed?

For more tumbling tumbleweeds I can recommend the opening scene of The Big Lebowski.

Colour Your World: Beaver (-Coloured Toad)

beaver_9f8170Day 18 of Colour Your World: Beaver 9f8170, hosted by Jennifer Nichole Wells.

Thank you, Jennifer and thank you all for visiting.

What do you mean, I don’t look like a beaver? Of course I don’t! I’m a common toad after all. I’m hopping mad, because Mr Grahame took my driver’s license away. Now I have to use my four limbs to get from A to B, e. g. from horse-pond to Toad Hall. BTW – Mrs Brown, you’ve got a lovely son!

Colour Your World: Atomic Tangerine

atomic_tangerine_ffa474Day 17: Colour Your World: Atomic Tangerine ffa474

Why this shade isn’t called atomic grapefruit (after the pink pulp, not the peel) escapes me. I could imagine a mushroom cloud in many shades of citrus fruits, ranging from yellow to almost red.

Let’s have a look at my image collection then. I fear I already used all orangey ones by now – so far it’s been quite an orange-parade or orangeade in a manner of speaking.

Ah – I just remembered the lion shaking the tangerine tree at the museum! (I know it’s really an orange-tree, but who cares?)

It wasn’t until I visited the Friesenmuseum at Wyk that I became aware of just another nautical tradition. In the past, proud sea-going vessels were not only adorned with figurheads at the prow. The sterns were also quite something to look at!

I was amazed to read about this giant *chopping board* on the wall and thought what the heck? Then I realised I had only misread Hackbrett for Heckbrett, so it actually meant a carved board fixed to the stern. One lives and learns as far as nautical terms go.

The lion with the cute little boompje was obviously retrieved from a Dutch vessel. The fruits could do with a little touch-up, but I hope you’ll take my word for it that once they must have shone brightly. As for the Crayola colour for today – what was it again? A whiff of orange/tangerine? Sorry, sinaasappel? 🙂 The atomic tangerine hue is reflected on the walls, of course.

Colour Your World: Burnt Sienna

Traditional beer-brewer’s house in Erfurt, Thuringia. When freshly brewed beer was available, a bundle of straw was hanging out the beer-holes above the door. This was necessary, because the beer wouldn’t keep too long.

Colour Your World: Vivid Tangerine

mandarinenbaum-2 mandarinenbaumMy idea of vivid tangerine would be the orange trees laden with fruit. But Crayola obviously favours the hue of the café bar building?

Hey, Mr Tangerine Man, pluck a fruit for me…

No, they’re not mine. I was very amazed to find them for sale at a large DIY superstore.

All I really wanted was wallpaper, so I just ignored them. Well, not quite…
