Blog-a-Prompt Day 1 - Colours

As if one blog a week wasn't enough, we have taken up the blog-a-prompt week thanks to Monika ;). So here goes!

When I see the topic "Colours" the first subject that came up to me was my garden. The transition from being fascinated with flowering plants to becoming nearly completely a "kitchen" gardener came very quickly for me. I still love to see my flowers, but I get to see so many colours in my garden anyway, that I don't miss purely flowering plants all that much :). 

The vibrant yellows....
Cherry tomatoes
Zucchini flower









One of my all time favourite pics
The lovely reds and oranges...

Sometimes a pretty pink

The flower of the black guava
And Purples too!

Different types of brinjal/aubergine

    1. Tulika, I had no idea about the name for a long time, but apparently that's what this species is called. They're slightly smaller than regular size, really dark skinned (more a dark maroon than black) and pinkish inside.
