HeyJude of Travel Words is inviting us to share images of white or silver things for this month’s Life in Colour blogging challenge. A new colour will be announced in a few days.

The final image is a hint that Becky’s month of squares challenge is but a few days away. Her topic for July is trees.

  1. I ignored the silver and honed in on the gorgeous lupins which I love but can never grow because the slugs get to them before I do. My grandfather used to grow an amazing amount of them and our house always seemed to be filled with lupins, brightening up dark corners.

    1. Lovely memories. We have a meadow not far away where they grow wild. I missed them this year, but it’s always a treat to catch them in flower.

  2. The Senecio candicans ‘Angel Wings’ is really nice! Quite a showstopper! Silvery colors may be something we don’t pay enough attention, too. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Oh your silvers are marvellous, they should win a silver medal!

    And I’m so touched you’ve hinted at squares, can’t wait to see more TreeSquares from Thursday.

  4. I love your silvers, but I might be the only person who is not keen on ‘Angel Wings’ I much prefer the smaller varieties. The lichen is more to my taste.

  5. I was so surprised to see the Senecio. When I see the name of that genus, this is what comes to mind: Senecio amplexicaulis. I really enjoyed seeing that plant, the lichens, and the agave. The color match among them is almost perfect.

  6. A metallic glint in the garden is something I don’t think about, and I should. This was a very welcome mid-day pick-me-up. Thanks!
