Frank, whose fab blog “Dutch Goes the Photo”, has set “RGB” as the topic for this week’s Photo Challenge.  What does this mean? Simply, he has set the challenge to post a photograph featuring red, green and blue.

Yesterday found me at the wonderful National Trust property “Polesden Lacey” in Surrey. The garden is quite a picture at the moment and I hoped to capture some red-green-blue shots. Wandering around it seemed increasingly unlikely and at one point I even considered stalking a robin to see if he would oblige in posing next to the forget-me-nots, but sadly it wasn’t to be. I came home thinking that I had failed.

Then I started reviewing my photos and was amazed to find two shots with the right colours showing. I just hadn’t realised at the time!!!

One is a shot of the cottage garden.


The other is of some old seed packets showing vibrant pictures of the flowers – and voila – red, green and blue are there. I’ve included a few more shots of these, as I was rather taken with them.

Finally , I’ve included a photo which I took last week in the late afternoon sun, featuring some BLUEbells, dandelion and the red brick of our house.

And there was me thinking when I first saw the challenge that I didn’t stand a chance!!  Nature has come up trumps. 😊
