Do you remember Crayola crayons?

Crayola crayons are surely remembered by everyone, from their childhood.  Even the smell conjures up memories of me, when I was very young, sitting at my tiny wooden red desk, scribbling on thick sugar paper. 

There is a WordPress challenge called Colour Your World where every day, a different colour from the Crayola range is the prompt.  Do have a look at this site. It is fascinating to read how many different colours there are, and the amazing names they are called.   Sometimes it is quite a challenge to find a photo representing that colour.

Today’s colour is Neon Carrot.    Imagine if there was such a thing as a neon carrot!  A very bright, almost fluorescent orange.    I couldn’t find any actual carrots this colour, but I came up with these…….
