Livid is a word which usually means white hot  “angry.”  It’s not pretty.

Livid can be used to describe a particularly intense shade of some colors; perhaps a livid red lipstick.

I never noticed a “livid” crayon in the Crayola box… Jennifer has shown me a new color with this challenge.

One meaning of “livid” really is a bluish/grayish color, which borders on some shade of lavender/purple.

This isn’t a color I would choose to eat, drink, wear, or use to decorate my home.

It is, though, a fairly common color in nature.

I hope you find the photos for this week’s challenge peaceful and beautiful…. the antithesis of “livid.”

May your September find you surrounded with beauty, love, and calmness.

 

With Appreciation to Jennifer Nichole Wells for her

  2. I love the irony of a duck blind being taken over by ospreys. 🙂

  3. Lovely. It is so often found in nature, but I never really realized it until this week- I’ve always associated grey blue, with old farm houses and such- fading, cracked blue paint.

  5. The picture on the top of this post can lessen the sorrow of today people who live in cold concrete boxes. Whenever I see fertilizing plants, I feel this life is so beautiful,
