So far I’ve only used “gallimaufry” (a chance find in a dictionary) as a title for a few of the Sunday colour collages for Aino’s Värikollaasit but now that I have actually heard it used in a Dr Who episode (in one of the first episodes with Peter Capaldi as the Doctor – I’m a bit behind in watching) I will use it more often for any hodgepodge collection for which I can’t find a unifying title.
a marsh willowherb
(a ramshackle) shack
a scarlet ibis
Since the scarlet ibis was hiding a bit, here is a hadeda ibis with its stately gait and glossy colours.
Those two are best of friends, not related but looking it. A symbiotic relationship that is great to watch.
I managed five out five for Paula’s Thursday Special: Pick a Word in October. Find more stately shacks symbiotic with scarlet marshes here.
