I'd planned another colour up until last night, but felt in need of some vivacity πŸŽ‰- so welcome to our new #colourshare: magnificent #magenta! .

By definition, magenta is equal parts red and blue on the RGB scale πŸ“Š, or hex #ff00ff β˜‘οΈ. Magenta used in print (as in CMYK) is apparently slightly different. And it's impossible to print out the vivid shade you see on your screen ❌. (It's amazing what you can learn in Wikipedia....πŸ˜‰). So this makes it ideal for sharing images on our screens! I've used the hex code to make the colour of the flower in this animation, but, in my mind, magenta is a bit deeper -hence the two shades: this vibrant, in-your-face colour has a clashing, retro, Sixties, psychedelic quality that I love - maybe it's my age....πŸ€” As always, please interpret as loosely you wish - I certainly will πŸ˜‚! Guessing it will be easier finding flowers than food, but we shall see....

#ColourShareTurquoise in all it's glory πŸ™Œ. How wistfully I looked at all those tropical sea scenes 🏝during our heatwave β˜€οΈ (remember that....?πŸ˜‚). Turns out turquoise features on all sorts of things and in all sorts of places πŸ’Ž. And it's the first #colourshare to have a photo of a matching emoji πŸ‘—! Thanks to all you lovely people for joining in - new colour tomorrow 😏! .

Enjoying your weekend? I spent an unexpected long time photographing this dish yesterday.... πŸ€”. You know how it goes: casually took a (@anthropologie ) dish out of the cupboard to put some food in, noticed how the decoration included some #ColourShareTurquoise 😲, food gets forgotten, and then moved the dish around our flat for the next hour πŸ˜‚ - on the dining table (wrong contrast), outside (too bright), on the floor (nope), on a red baking mat (almost). Finally settled on this white cube light as the setting because the colours on the dish are the focal point 😍. Then the angle: looking straight down (shows off decoration, but a bit dull), whole dish from an angle (too much clutter in background....) - settled on a detail πŸ‘Œ. Then had to flip photo - not really sure why, just looked better when I tried out all these endless versions in Preview (my go-to app for planning my feed). And then a bit of zing added with an insta filter πŸ™Œ - Lark, I think. I only ever tweak photos within insta - I know there are much better apps out there but, well, this just suits me. And although I don't often use filters, for some reason my turquoise photos looked a bit dull without one, and filters showed them in a truer light πŸ‘. .

Does this sound familiar? How do you take photos for your feed? Trial and error? Have a plan? Get completely distracted without intending to....??? Please share!

Are you a #booklover? I'm lucky that my blended family is full of them πŸ’šπŸ’™. I like nothing more than seeing a pile of book-shape packages at Christmas or birthdays πŸ“š. Like these two collections of letters - both a pleasure to read and a pleasure to have on the shelf πŸ‘Œ- not least because of the #ColourShareTurquoise cover....πŸ˜‰. My children and step-children have introduced me to such wonderful reading. My recent favourites to pass on: Dr Zhivago (as wonderful as the film); An Unquiet Mind by Kay Redfield Jamieson (a brilliant memoir about manic depression); and All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr (beautifully written and incredibly moving). .

I wish I had painted this πŸ’™, but no - it's by @edwinabroadbent, and is called (so poetically) "Perfumed Nights".

I love floral Still Life paintings πŸ–Ό, but never got to grips with them myself. But the next best thing is be able to admire it πŸ’™, hanging on our wall, in a simple white frame, and surrounded by lots of white wall. The colours - including a range of #ColourShareTurquoise - really sing, at pretty much any time of day. And it lasts longer than any bunch of fresh flowers πŸ˜‰.

We bought this from the wonderful Capstan gallery in Cornwall, but one of the best way to buy art is at Open Studios - Stroud has a fabulous one every year, but there are so many around - go along, and get to see local artists. .

Are you a Rebel? I am, by nature, a rule follower βœ”οΈ - I just prefer following my rules to other people's.... πŸ˜‚. So I don't really class myself as one but, to quote Joni Mitchell, "I'm drawn to those ones who ain't afraid" 😍. Which is extra apt here, because this #ColourShareTurquoise ribbon was round a beautiful bunch of @rebelrebele8 flowers from my husband, who is most definitely in the rebel camp πŸ’ͺ. For our wedding a few years ago, I wanted beautiful natural flowers, and theirs were heart-swellingly lovely πŸ’“, and smelt as gorgeous as they looked. They have been my favourite florist ever since πŸ’. And the added bonus is getting the Bowie song 🎢 in my head every time I see this ribbon πŸ˜‰ .

It's the longest day of the year! And rarely has it been hotter - in London, anyway. Are you enjoying the heatwave 😎? I'm a bit flaky in the heat , and paranoid about burning because I'm a freckly redhead. But the upside is it's hot for #ColourShareTurquoise week πŸ‘—! I don't wear twirly dresses often - this might change my mind πŸ€”. I bought this a couple of years ago, after being in Venice during a heatwave and wishing I had a cover-up-but-cool dress - lo and behold, I found one πŸ™Œ. And now it's my saving grace in our homegrown heatwave too β˜€οΈβ˜€οΈβ˜€οΈ. Happy Solstice!

Are you naturally an optimist πŸ™‚or a pessimist πŸ™ ? I'm definitely the former πŸ‘. Deteriorating eyesight? An opportunity for more colour in my life 🌈- witness these #ColourShareTurquoise reading glasses πŸ‘“ ! .

I now have an array of off-the-peg glasses. #Orange ones by my computer πŸ€“ - like this wonderful matte #turquoise pair (for book reading πŸ“–), easy to spot when that age-old question "where did I put them?" πŸ€” pops up . A red/tortoiseshell pair by my bed - not the greatest colour combination, but with LEDs πŸ’‘in the arms for reading in the dark (sounds amazing? Doesn't work). Classic #tortoiseshell reading sunglasses 😎, which live in my wash bag ready for holiday πŸ– (but might be needed here at this rate β˜€οΈ). A tiny clear plastic folding pair (very clever design - I'll demonstrate in my story), which live in my handbag πŸ‘œand are invariably used for menus 🍸. And my latest pair: reactive reading sunglasses πŸ•Ά, in a rather-colourful-if-not-very-flattering multicoloured tortoiseshell, which will live in the car so I can map-read on a sunny day (whether a real map or a phone screen, street and place names keep shrinking....πŸ˜‚). One way or another, there's always a fun day ahead!

Really needed a photo of #ColourShareTurquoise water after a super-hot day like today in London. Repost by @mimmilofvall. Noise from our balcony of people jumping into Shadwell Basin to cool off - I can but dream that the nearby water is as #turquoise as this....πŸ€”πŸ˜πŸ˜‚

Welcome to #ColourShareTurquoise πŸŽ‰! Hard to spell, and harder still to define πŸ€”. One of those colours that we all see differently πŸ™„. (And which is testing on emojis, let alone flowers or food....πŸ˜‚.) No matter! All shades welcome here πŸ‘. .

What's your favourite drink in the sunshine? Mine has to be Aperol Spritz 🍹. It's glow brightens any table πŸ’₯. I was far too keen for my first "sip" to compose this photo, so a real snap of #ColourShareOrange β€οΈπŸ”ΆπŸ’›. .
