One Word Photo Challenge–Persimmon

Jennifer Nichole Wells has done it again with her fun photo challenge (click here to learn more), which features a different color each week.  This week’s color is persimmon!  I love the color of orange in any shade!

These are real persimmons.  They are not ripe, so the color is not as brilliant as the photo above, but my tea kettle in the background works for the color also.

I have a small garden in my creative room and realized that my pen holder (a tiny flower pot) is the perfect color of persimmon too.

I know I have shared this daylily before, so you must forgive me, however the color is stunning and almost a persimmon color.  I am pining for spring and summer.  All the beauty is there waiting for us just around the corner.

Thanks for popping in for a quick visit today.  I enjoy seeing you every time you can make it by,

  1. Well done, I enjoy your challenge posts.
    I haven’t seen/heard of a persimmon in many decades.
    Your little garden is quite lovely. You must have a green thumb (or a helpful fairy who tends them)
    Your lily is beautiful. Aren’t lilies fun and easy to grow? Just plant the bulbs and wait for them to smile at you with a big bloom. 🙂

  2. I haven’t had a persimmon in a long time. There’s nothing quite a sumptuous as a ripened persimmon. I like the tea kettle in the background, it adds a second focal point in your photo. Nicely done, Colleen!

  4. These are wonderful! I feel so out of the loop, having never tried a persimmon. I’ll have to keep an eye out for where to buy some around here. Your little garden is so cute, perfect for a creative room. And that daylily is gorgeous. Thank you so much for sharing!


    1. Yes, it whistles loudly too! The dogs get bothered by it. Persimmons taste like a mango but not that strong. I like them ripe and unripe. Ripe, they are very soft and sweet. Unripe they taste like a tropical apple with a similar texture. ❤

      1. Sounds mouthwatering, Colleen. Now I wonder why we don’t get over here in the UK? Maybe we do, but only in specialist shops?

        You know I haven’t seen a whistling kettle in years. Brings back a lot of memories of my Grandmother and having tea with her 🙂

        1. Many people use electric kettles, I know. I was taught by a good Suffolk lass, how to make tea. We always boiled it in a kettle and I can’t get past the taste. Heating water in the microwave or an electric kettle tastes strange to me. ❤

  5. Yes, I too, like the persimmon tea kettle in back of the real persimmons. I only found your blog because of the persimmons and I want to tell you how much I like your blog title, Silver Threading. My dark hair is has been getting silver threads for quite some time now. I love the image!!

      1. Orange is a very pretty color. It’s so strange that people say they aren’t an orange person. but so many of the things they like come in some shade of orange. Just think about all of the autumn flowers that people can’t wait to set out once September comes around – and pumpkins, oranges, sunsets.
