26th June ’17: Purple & yellow super-duo

Welcome to a new week, my colour-loving friends ☀️👾🌼☂️🐤
I am a big fan of purple and yellow. Together they are supreme (they could even be a superhero duo alongside orange and blue). Sadly, they’ve been partly commandeered by UKIP but I think they’re resplendent enough to cast off that association, given time. I spotted them looking sassy on this @frompaperchasepot in the form of a floral and elephant pattern. After six months in India when I was 18, elephant motifs have a special place in my heart. I bought a hefty sandalwood elephant in Mysore that I had shipped home. My mum collected him from Docklands and named him Mr Ramesh (after a character in Alan Bennett’s brilliant Talking Heads). Despite my perfectionist protestations that he should really be Ganesh (after the elephant god), the name has stuck to this day 🐘I hope today is a good one for you. Catch you later.
