Chinese New Year - Dragon Dance

Vibrant Colours for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge

Chinese New Year celebrations in Newcastle upon Tyne
Chinese New Year celebrations in Newcastle upon Tyne

We like to join in the Chinese New Year celebrations that are held in Newcastle upon Tyne each year. There’s always a colourful parade through Stowell Street in the centre of Newcastle’s ‘China Town’. Happy crowds of people line the street and follow the parade as it dances energetically on its way.

Vibrant yellow of Coltsfoot in Spring
The vibrant yellow of Coltsfoot telling us that Spring is springing

The bright yellows of Coltsfoot are always a welcome sight in early Spring. I loved the way these ones were emerging through last year’s dry Beech leaves.

Poppies by the stones

The gorgeous crimson red of these poppies really brightened up the edge of the field near my house this Summer.

Vibrant pink Cyclamen flowering
My ‘rescued’ Cyclamen in all its flowering glory this Summer

When I first ‘rescued’ this Cyclamen plant from a plant stall a couple of years ago, it looked very sad and bedraggled. With some loving care and attention, I have managed to transform my Cyclamen into a more respectable-looking specimen. The magenta flowers really do have a bit of ‘zing’ and certainly brighten up my kitchen window ledge. I took this photo outside to be sure the colour looked its best!

… and don’t forget to take a look at all the other vibrant colours for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge this week 🙂
