Don’t worry about rhyming anything, but show us your teal and/or aqua-colored images this week for May’s monthly color challenge.
I can’t think of much that rhymes with aqua, can you? Teal, though, well there’s a lot, but not much that has to do with the actual colors, but I digress…
More ideas for the colors of teal and aqua
Starting with Florals
Yes, there are flowers of blue…
And pots of a teal hue…
We often overlook the variety of colors found in our own neighborhoods. Maybe because we are used to seeing the same thing every day, or we don’t notice the mundane. One of my birdhouses and a bird feeder are shades of aqua and teal.
I was surprised to find many of the buildings in the homes and gardens sport various hues of blue…
…including ours. There’s a hint of teal in the sky. Edited with Painnt App.
I must have been in a teal-and-tortoise mood when I ordered my new glasses last week.

May is Water Safety Month
As it is my habit to share every May since I started this blog, please be safe in and around all bodies of water, now that summer activities begin in the northern hemisphere.
Happy Mothers’ Day to those who celebrate today!
