Corner View - White

This week's Corner View comes courtesy of Natsumi and the theme is "white."

White comes from Greece, and no it's not a picture of me in all my pale, almost opaque glory lying on a beach, but the vivid white that all the houses are painted to keep out the heat.....it's the white mixed with stunning blues and greens, the white on white........



White comes from the famous Pueblos Blancos of Andalucia such as Grazalema and Setenil, where I hiked last September...


White reminds me of summer......white is my Frederick Mouse colour, my summer memories stored for the winter....

But funnily enough, white is also the colour most associated with winter......
