The colours of the rainbow.
Or Roy G. Biv as is sometimes used by school kids to remember the colours – red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo & violet. Or as MB used to recite – Richard Of York Gave Battle In Vain, as he once memorised many years ago.
Anyway, MB is only concentrating on one of the 7 colours for the photo challenge – Green – having just spent the last week in his very green homeland.
There’s a song written by Johnny Cash in 1959 on a visit to Ireland called Forty Shades of Green. Sums it up to some degree:
I close my eyes and picture the emerald of the sea
from the fishing boats at Dingle to the shores at Donaghdee
I miss the River Shannon and the folks at Skibbereen
the moorlands and meadows and their Forty Shades of Green
MB gives you 3 pics from his trip home last week in his HX homeland to also give you a flavour:
