Colour Of The Day: Blue


Sunday 25 May, 2014 by Uncle Spike

The third in my mini-series on colours (or even colors).

Today’s theme for my look at colours is BLUE.

Hmm, couldn’t find any pictures of roses, so here’s an assortment of other blues around the farm… Interestingly, none of the featured items are natural; most of the flowering stuff here has more of a purple/mauve tinge, so haha, that’s reserved for another day 🙂


First off… our 2,000 litre (570 US gallon) water tank that I use for the veggies, fed weekly from the artesian that pumps fresh mountain water up from 121 metres (393′) underground.



Cousin Spike Juniors‘ not so much used old bike



One of the small bore garden hoses



An old fruit crate that doubles up for rearing abandoned or bought in chicks.



A ceramic tile plaque on the balcony.



My latest toy…. a garden fork that Uncle Baldrick brought over from the UK last New Years (never seen them here), but made short work of the veggie areas compared to the pickaxe used for past years.



A sack of imported high grade coal. I only use a few handful’s a day just to help light up the big boiler in winter. The white bags beneath are our regular lignite (brown) coal that came from the Soma coal mines where 301 of our miners tragically died very recently. I wonder if now dead men will have provided our heat next winter; a sobering thought indeed 😦



My trusty ‘terliks’, or plastic sandals/clogs that I use around the garden. Often seen adorned to accompany my boxers at 2am when on foxy duty.



The baby gas bottle… just for cooking fish, oh and for burning off the fluff after plucking a chicken for the pot…



A lastly, a lowly pipe join – got a few of them



That’s my look at blue. Quite different to the other colours so far…
