Many thanks to our lovely guest host, Sue (Mac’s Girl) of The Nature of Things for a creative challenge where we could all be inspired to try new (and old) pastimes. Be sure to have a look if you haven’t already paid her a visit!
As many countries are opening up a bit from lock-down, and I was inspired by the soft glory of spring nature in my part of the world, I thought we would indulge in some Delicate Colours! They are everywhere in nature, but also to be found anywhere you look, in for example fashion, art and architecture.
For this challenge, I took a walk around my garden, and also a walk in one of my neighboring forests. In fact I was looking for orchids in the wetlands there, but they had not yet woken up… In the opener is the evening sky seen from my house, yesterday late.
My garden lilacs – a joy in the evenings when their delightful scent fills the air.
In the forests now, Solomon’s seal is ruling. One of my favorites, so elegant and delicate both in colour and grace.
Water avens and common dandelion are both greatly loved by insects – and by me! In Sweden we call water avens ”humleblomster” – bumblebee flower in direct translation. If you take a look inside, it looks like the bumblebee is already there…
In my garden forget-me-not grow abundantly. I love their shy little faces hiding in the shadows. Have you ever noticed them in late evenings? You will see that they almost outshine the brightest yellow flowers.
Brown shades are delicate as well, even if they maybe are a bit overlooked. This big snail was slowly sailing over the shady path, with the soft light falling down through the canopy, landing on his house. A delightful meeting – even if snails are not really my cup of tea…
Have you seen these:
At John’s Space, you will find a beautiful jigsaw puzzle
Bend Branches – Rocks! And how to decorate your garden with them
TCast – shows us a beautiful study in stillness
TiongHan’s blog – on how to handle boredom…
Thank you again for your fantastic support of our challenge, welcome again, and please use the tag Lens-Artists and link to my original page – not through the reader.
Also, stay safe and well, and tuned for May 30: #99 Amy of The World is a Book

What a perfect prompt idea for this time of year! I love your delicate flowers – and I think you and I both included the same kind of flower (the forget-me-not?). I am not familiar with most names, but they look similar. 🙂
Oh they are – love forget-me-nots! So glad you liked the idea and joined in! Beautiful!
Thank you as well 🙂

Here are my colours, delicate in an intense way. My photos from this day led me to a discovery that almost a year ago you set the Lens-Artists theme on ”delicate” as well! 😉 And back then I chose photos from the same day in Slovenia. Something about them seem delicate to me. I hope it’s colours. 🙂 And I like your delicate blossoms too.
Manja – of course Slovenia and the beauty of the landscape and days gone by (even if it was only last year, I agree it feels almost a lifetime…) is precious. Your country is enveloped in beauty.
Pretty colors and flowers! https://talesfrommylens.net/2020/05/27/delicate-colors/

Thank you, Cee!
Love your delicate colours, Ann-Christine, especially the forget-me-nots. My gardener self struggles with the snail though: you’ve given it supernatural powers. Yikes! 🙂
Here’s my post: https://tishfarrell.com/2020/05/27/delicacy-in-decay-the-doorstep-amaryllis/
Haha, you made me laugh out loud, Tish – I understand you don’t like snails either…! This was a big one, you know the edible ones (yikes..no…not me) and well – unfortunately I have got thousands of snails in my garden, small ones. It is a constant struggle to pick them, drown them…or whatever. No poison. But, they eat everything. You are an avid gardener – having any tips?

Here’s my contribution to the challenge after a couple of false starts:
Beautiful as always, David – thank you for joining in! False starts? I am trying the new editor and it doesn’t agree with me…
I’ve now done two posts with the new editor but I don’t like it. It seems slower and a bit simplistic. I like the classic editor because I can flip over to the HTML and edit that to tweek the formatting.
Well, I am no tech, so I never mess with the HTML, but I don’t like it anyway. Don’t know if I am patient enough to get the hang of it…I could not even thrash a picture easily but had to close down the whole post
and start a new one…And how do you get the photos full sized when clicking? No, I will give it one more try only.
I could tweek the size and position of the photos in the HTML. I couldn’t find where to edit categories and tags but I finally found it although there’s more steps involved in doing something that should be quick and easy.
Agreed. I don’t like the new editor. I use the classic editor exclusively. Is WP trying to make it like Twitter or Facebook? Fugeddaboutit.
Ha – I’m so totally with you.

Hi Ann-Christine I see u have excluded our American friends from this challenge as they do not have colours only colors 🙂
Lovely lilac-ish sunset. Despite being a sensitive soul nothing springs to mind regarding the word delicate, but maybe I’ll ask a friend as Tina did…
Oh, Abrie…so glad you are here even if you haven’t found inspiration – yet! But surely, if I have lost the Americans…you must take you reponsibility and fill in for them…? Friends are good to have – if they are helpful and creative especially…
Ha! I noticed that too. Leave it to the Americans to ravage The Queen’s English. 😉
Do not be I intmidated Ann-Christine, we can spell, it is those from John’s region who cannot spell.
Now you two…keep calm and be good boys…♥♥ Or should I say boys will be boys?
Hahaha…yes, I will do just that! I taught BE and will not leave My part to the Americans…

Beautiful selection. I for some reason really like the different shades of browns. https://thankfulbylily.wordpress.com/2020/05/25/lens-artists-photo-challenge98-delicate-colours/
Thank you – interesting, isn’t it? Brown was very popular in the 70’s, but it is now having a revival here in clothes as well as in interior decoration.
Oh, really? That’s cool! That would be nice. 😊

Thank you for joining in!
Our pleasure!!! You really chose a workable theme for many photographers!
Happy to learn that!
These delicate flowers and colors are treats for the eyes. I like what you’ve selected and how you’ve arranged the photos — the two in circles make for a very interesting layout. Thanks for inspiration this week!
Thank you! I just wanted to show that delicate colours are everywhere in our everyday life! On our doorstep!
I wish my doorstep faced the marsh at Pawleys. But because it isn’t, our trips have become very special. Thanks for commenting. It’s people like you who keep us going.
Ann-Christine, I love the pictures from your garden and the woods and especially the one of the snail. Such delicate shades of brown! Another fun topic, here is mine for this week: https://lagottocattleya.wordpress.com/2020/05/23/lens-artists-photo-challenge98-delicate-colours/

What a journey to get this post out……hope it’s OK Ann-Christine
Ah, just found it – lovely, Brian. The music as well. I haven’t tried the new editor…maybe it will get me stop blogging…?
No no no….you can’t abandon me/us. Once you do a few you’ll get the hang of it. You can still used the old classic until 2022 I think
♥ I will give it a try.
Hey…Brian – help! I have tried it today for my Wednesday post but got a bit irritated…I wanted to change the picture, but how do I thrash a picture here? I had to remove the whole post. So far this editor does not agree with me…
Removing something is easy. In the top toolbar that is attached to the image block, there is 3 dots on the right hand side, click on that and a drop down will appear. At the bottom of the drop down is a remove block. All the commands are in the toolbars attached to the blocks. Hope that helps
Thank you – so I have to go to a special block first? Well…love it when things get easier…
Sorry I am a bit busy. Will get back tonight

That photo of the snail is spectacular. And you are right about how brown is overlooked.

Thank you! In the 70’s, when I was young, brown was a popular colour on everything from clothes to interior decoration.
Hi, A-C. Here’s my take on ”delicate colors.” I am loving the beautiful images/posts. Very uplifting. Just what we need! https://wordpress.com/view/pilotfishblog.com

Yes. Thank you.
Yes, just what we need. Our community is a gift.
Uplifting things are what we need! Thank you, Patti!
The snail twirl is lovely even though I am no fan of the chomping molluscs! I might have some delicate colours from my walk today around the lanes, I shall see what I can find.
Enhancing him was fun – I don’t like them at all… I am sure your lovely surroundings will bring some delicate treats!
Mine is up now A-C hope you enjoy it!

Lovely Ann Christine, I love the water aven, never seen one before. It’s truly delicate.
Wendy, I love it too, but it is so difficult to photograph as its head is hanging low! An unusual colour. It grows where it is slightly damp and wet, so not in my garden.
thank you so much for sharing, once again, the beautiful world around you, Ann-Christine. the delicate colors are simply stunning. great theme!! here is my contribution: https://lolawi.blog/2020/05/24/delicate-colors/
Thank you, Wilma, for your sweet comment! I am always grateful for living here, close to nature. So glad you like the theme too.
Thank you for the lovely stroll through your garden. It brought a smile to my face. The forget-me-nots are one of my favorite flowers. I wish I had some in my garden beds. The sunset shot is stunning – I love the delicate mix of colors, I can see why you stopped to take a photo of it!
Glad you came along, Shelley! You have a lovely garden yourself, and I might send you some forget-me-nots…In fact we don’t often have such lovely sunsets, because we don’t live by the sea or in an open area without houses. I was lucky!
Thank you for the opportunity to play along! I’d love some forget-me-nots. They always remind me of a chalk art painting that my daughter did for our local dementia friendly community.
You definitely lucked out on that sunset!!
Thank you, Shelley!
A very challenging challenge for me this week Ann-Christine! I am not the most delicate of creatures, nor are my normal subjects! I loved your choices for the post and envy your glorious garden. Especially liked the forget-me-nots.
You always meet Any challenge gloriously, Tina! Thank you!
I liked your picture of the water avens. The flower has a pretty color and shape.
Here is my contribution to the challenge.
Thank you, yes, the colour is unusual in wild flowers, and it is so difficult to photograph – as it is hanging its head.
Such a great one. Will spend all day looking at these photographs. Love the lilacs!
Thank you so much – hope you are well and safe!

You are acing the twirls, Ann-Christine. I love that snail. Also, I totally agree that brown is an under-appreciated delicate colour. Spring flowers in a forest are also synonymous with delicate colours. Just gorgeous.
So glad you enjoyed them, Tracy! I just felt like a simple walk in the garden…then came along that ugly snail…
🙂 I read an article recently about a woman who did sculptures of slugs. They were just beautiful. The sculptures that is.
Oh, sculptures! I can imagine they look good, the shapes and colours might be great for that. In Sweden we have concrete sculptures of them to stop traffic.
The indignity! 🙂

Those are some rather nice plant shots you’ve got there. Most of them feel rather small and capture the delicate nature of their flowers.

P.S. Thanks for the blog mention. I’m still puzzled. Very puzzled.
Me too – doing a 1500 one now. Hand painted………so the details are not that detailed.
Looking forward to your clodhoppers’ findings John! ;-D
