#Sundaystills Apriplumish

Sometimes I organize things to the 9th degree and occasionally I wing it. So it is in life and with this post.

Usually the Sunday stills challenge catches me off guard and I think about the theme and then quickly pull together a post. For some reason I saw this week’s colour (apricot) way ahead of time and then the next day I learnt about apriplums.

Who knew? It’s a fruit that is a hybrid of a plum and an apricot, and tastes more like an apricot: Plumcots and apriplums are first-generation hybrids. Consumed in volume by small children without a seconds hesitation that it was a new food.

Once that picture fell into place I felt inspired to go through the archives and pull up a few oldies. That is after I did an image search to compare colours with.

And that was so much fun I kept going. Besides I was bored at Toronto’s Airport and needed a diversion. Colours in flowers can be a single shade or as in the examples below the colours merge and meld. Each one reads a little yellow, a little peach, a little apricot and a little orange.

And that was so fun I put a few random ones into Canva and hoped to find the final ones once we started traveling around Prince Edward Island. I actively kept an eye cast for these tidbits of colour and feel like I did indeed find some good ones.

Take memories Leave only footprints Unknown

And that was so fun…

but no that’s where I called it a day. It’s been a fun challenge and I am always appreciative of the time Terri over at Second Wind Perspectives puts into these.


Ps I promise to stop posting so often in about 5 more days! Till then bare with me as we finish up our trip.


I have had a love of the written word for my entire life. It's no surprise that eventually I found a platform where I could write. It's random; sometimes funny, occasionally sad, maybe even at times from anger and I lean towards creative photography and hands on crafts. I have a few blogs that high light these interests.

  1. Definitely an Apriplum post Bernie. No worries about the frequent posts. Good to spill it while the memories and feelings are still fresh. Happy travels. Allan

    1. Turns out more have not heard of them than have so now I don’t feel quite so out of the loop. Glad you enjoyed the colours. Bernie
      Ps plan to read your whole series once home and with time to devout to it.


  2. I have never heard of apriplums–they look delicious! I struggle eating a lot of these kinds of fruits and I dislike plums for some reason. But the colors are pretty, LOL! Great gallery of the color. That beer image is quite pretty! Like you when I create my themes, I am always on the lookout for the ideas. Nicely done on this, my friend!


    1. Glad I wasn’t the only one to have never heard of them. I can handle a plum but not a fan of apricot. The colours did lend themselves to a great gallery and because I had time I really had fun with it! Bernie

  3. The comment I was writing just disappeared *poof* so I’ll just say I like pluots which is what plums + apricots are called in our grocery. I also like your focus on one color family for this post.


    1. Ah someone who has heard of them. I felt like I had just fallen off a pumpkin truck to have never heard of them! I had fun with this challenge mostly because I had all that airport time. Glad you persevered and did the comment a second time Ally. I hate when they poof. Bernie
