Your Questions, My Answers.

So yesterday I was asked what my favorite colour is, and urged to answer with "utmost haste".
The truth is, I don't know. There's so many beautiful colours, I can't pick just one or two.
So I've compiled some pictures that show off my favorite hue of every main colour group.

 (I just pulled these pictures off Bing, but since I'm only using them for color comparisons, I don't think anyone will mind. If you see your picture here and want it removed, let me know and I'll find a different one.)

Peonies. Also my favorite flower. I mean, have you smelled these things? So great.

Red coral. Kind of morbid that these are the piled-up skeletons of microscopic animals.

Sunsets. Sunrises. Need I say more?

Dandelions, the most underrated flower in America. This thing was actually brought here by settlers for their medicinal properties, but now we consider it a weed.

Is it just me, or are new leaves just so pretty? They're so shiny, and they've got that slight reddish tinge...

Prussian blue. The picture doesn't do it justice. I love this colour- it's such a rich, deep hue.

Tanzanite is a gorgeous purple gemstone found only in Tanzania and is one of the rarest gems in the world. I want one.

Cue cute bunny. Why are brown animals just such a gorgeous shade of brown?

The Weimaraner is freaking gorgeous. These hunting dogs are known for their beautiful blue eyes, unusual solid grey coats, and their name that is SUPER FREAKING HARD TO SPELL. 

And finally, coal black. If you've ever seen a piece of coal up close, you know that it sometimes displays faint iridescence. I also really like the sort of pockmarked texture; if you look closely sometimes you can see tiny fossils in them. Super cool.

So what's your favorite colour? Let me know in the comments.

  1. I thought I commented already, but I guess it didnt go through...
    But as everybody already knows, teal(and any blue-ish, green-ish colour in that range) is my favourite! I also like coral and pastel red/warm pink depending on how much of pretentious jerk you are about colour names.
