Colour is a power which directly influences the soul-Wassily Kandinsky

I never knew the name of a colour called ‘Burly wood’  till Terri Webster Schrandt

introduced to us this colour in her Sunday Stills Burlywood  Photography challenge.

Burlywood colour looks like this.


It’s a medium-light shade of brown. It’s made up of red, green and blue.

It’s seen everywhere in Nature be a tree trunk, or leaves, beach sand, desert etc.

The only requirement is that you have to look for it.

Desert Sand

“Love me or hate me, the desert seems to say, this is what I am and this is what I shall remain”  unknown

Patience and humour are two camels that can take you through any desert of your life, you may experience


“Science is merely an extremely powerful method of winnowing what’s true from what feels good” Carl Sagan


Winnower is a device used for winnowing, wherein chaff from the grain is separated through the current of air.

This one used to be popular in Indian homes now rarely used by the urban population, but still seen in the villages.

The sound produced during winnowing can be music.

Burlywood Leaf

“They tell you to turn into a new leaf and then complain about your faded colour” Nitya Prakash

Have you noticed how the colour of a leaf changes during autumn?

The change is truly colourful.

Various shades of yellow, orange, purple, red and brown invite us for a free visual treat.

Do you feel sad for the fallen leaves?

No need my friend.

“In every change, in every falling leaf, there is some pain, some beauty. And that’s the way new leaves grow.” Amit Ray

Thank you.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏
