A-Z Challenge: Beyond Orange... a look at colours that are also foods!

This is my second year to participate in the Blogging From A to Z April Challenge.  My theme will takes  look at colours and foods that share the same name.  Of course orange came to mind first when I was dreaming up this theme, but let's not use this one! Instead of orange, I think O is for Olive!  Some of the letters may be a bit of a challenge, so a few liberties may be taken to complete the alphabet..  (Can you think of an X?)

I spent a fair amount of time in paint stores looking for colour names and some that I found are down right silly! Crayola does a great job of naming, as do cosmetic companies (lipstick). 

I'm looking forward to a colourful April!  Hope you will join me...


  1. Hi Cheryl,
    I admire your creative choice of a theme and look forward to reading your posts. You've obviously done lots of research since, off the top, I'd be stuck after carrot and orange :)

    I'm doing the challenge this year for the first time. I blog at My theme for the challenge is Snack-Sized Wow Notes for Women, Midlife and Beyond.

    Have a great challenge.

  2. This is one of the most unusual challenges I've read so far!

  3. Great theme!
    I found you on The A-Z List (rearranged by theme. So far, 17 of us Art people, a nice cozy size)
    I'm doing two A-Zs, in the Art category, Shoes -- aka "Fluevogs From A-Z"
    The other A-Zs are "watercolors" (really a phone app) of trucks:

    Looking forward to A!
