Walkabout Wednesday – an Apricot World

Our Sunday Stills color challenge this week is apricot so I thought we’d take a stroll through some apricotty spots around the world

a fellow hiker, North Rim Grand Canyon

North Rim Grand Canyon, North Rim, Arizona. One of the many trails we hiked during our visits, we spotted this little fellow atop an apricot boulder having a little snack.

Westfir, Oregon

Apricot-colored skies are an ill omen in Westfir, Oregon. The color is created by the sun brightly shining behind a column of wild fire smoke We were evacuated the next day.

Dole Plantation Garden, Hawaii

As we travel farther west, we find this beautiful apricot tipped bromeliad at the Dole Plantation garden on Oahu, Hawaii.

Sake museum, Osaka Japan

Next we go a bit farther afield to Osaka, Japan where we visited the Hakutsuru Sake Brewery Museum. Fascinating museum where you can have a sake tasting, or prowl about the museum and gift shot, or both. We particularly noted the apricot toned painting depicting the sake brewers at work.

Limb support, Queenstown Botanical Garden

Traveling on we come to Queenstown Botanical Garden in Queenstown, New Zealand. Here we see an apricot-colored support pole for a branch of a massive old oak tree. The pole is hand carved with ferns depicted on all sides. A beautiful combination of form and function.

found poetry Queenstown, NZ

As we cross Lake Wakatipu we come upon a bit of apricot poetry artistically mounted in the retaining wall, again in Queenstown, NZ

“Days releasing meteorological balloons into a delicate apricot sky in this landscape we invent as it invents us – from rock, flake and springwater, from a skiff of froth tumbling over a weir into the afterglow of the aurora.”

That’s my apricots around the world for today

This post inspired by Terri’s Sunday Stills Monthly Color Challenge – Apricot and Marsha’s PPAC # 63

  1. Lovely thoughts and pictures of apricots and the totem-type limb support. That’s a good idea. I’ve seen quite a few limbs that need permanent support, and how nice to have an attractive one.
